Are you the Master of an alternative choir? Are your kids in the coolest choir around? Do they prefer singing Maximo Park to Mozart?
BBC 6 Music choral competition
BBC6 Music’s Weekend Breakfast Show are scouring the UK, looking for the best choral version, by a kids choir, of a 6 music song. Natasha Desborough, presenter of the Weekend Breakfast show, says; ‘ it can be from the current crop of bands we’re playing on the show ; The Kaisers, Razorlight, Snow Patrol, The Arcade Fire, or it could be a classic, Hendrix track, or something from the Stones, Led Zep, Radiohead or Oasis’.
The idea for the competition was sparked by a spine tingling choral version of The Kaiser Chief’s ‘I predict a riot’, which has been given a new treatment by Warrnington choi:'The Chshire Chord Company'. The song was taken to the choir meet by the mother of one of the Kaiser Chief's roadies.
Entries via CD or MP3 will be accepted up until the closing date of Friday 30th March. For details on how to enter visit Natasha’s page on the 6 music website. www.bbc.co.uk/6music
All of the entries will go on the 6 music website, then over the weekend of the 31st of March the 6 music listeners will vote for their favourite, the three with the most votes will come in the following weekend and sing live in front of a panel of judges with the winners getting what thousands of bands in the UK would love to have: two weeks of airplay on BBC 6 music.
