Wow - what a week for Solent City!

Less than a week after claiming two trophies at the Chichester Music Festival, the guys picked up two more at the Isle of Wight Festival. In the Male Voice Choir category Solent picked up the Association Cup, achieving a “Distinction” in
the process.
The renowned international classical singer Melanie Armitstead, judging the competition, praised the chorus’s energy, dynamics and warmth.
Nine members drawn from the chorus, and singing under the unlikely title of the North Island Ferrets, then triumphed in the Small Barbershop Group category, winning the Canterbury Cup.
The judge was especially impressed by the stunning beginning of the performance, with “one voice coming out of the silence”.
