Personal Excellence

The Choirs of St Aloysius’ College once again achieved outstanding results at the Glasgow Music Festival, claiming five 1st place finishes and winning the award for best choir overall, showcasing the ambition to be a centre of excellence in choral music.

This year the College entered ten different choirs into the Glasgow Music Festival and each one managed to place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in their Category, competing against some of the very best choirs from Glasgow and beyond.

With some of the stand-out performances in Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall, five of St Aloysius’ College’s Choirs were awarded first place in their category.

The St Aloysius’ College Infant Choir placed 1st in the Primary Schools Choirs P1 & P2 Category whilst the Training Choir won the Primary 5 and Under Category.
