Old Vic Launches School Choir Competition.
The Bristol Old Vic have announced a School Choir Competition, to run as part of their forthcoming brand-new production of Swallows and Amazons. School classes are invited to submit their performance of Whistle on the Wind, one of the show’s songs, by video. The winning performance will be picked by Neil Hannon, the musical’s composer, and the winning class will receive tickets to one of the performances at the Old Vic, plus a backstage tour.
