The Ancora Women’s Ensemble, directed by Terry Logan, is celebrating its second place win at the 2015 B.C. Provincial Festival of Performing Arts.
Held in Powell River last month, the choir represented the Shuswap festival with a mark of 95 per cent.
“Choirs do not attend the (provincial) festival, but submit a recording and are sent a written critique from the adjudicators,” said Logan, who directs the 15-voice auditioned choir from her studio in Armstrong.
This is the second consecutive year Ancora has won an award at the provincial festival.
The choir, whose members come from both the North Okanagan and Shuswap, most recently performed with Vancouver’s Elektra Women’s Choir when it sang for the North Okanagan Community Concert Association in May.
