Additional Award for the 2019 Cornwall International Male Choral Festival

This year a new special award will be up for grabs in the International Youth Concert and Competition. The Kelwood Cup for the most entertaining youth performance will be adjudicated by Cornwall's prolific composer and conductor, Russell Pascoe, and this has all been made possible due to the kind donation of the trophy by Harry and Margaret Woodhouse. 

The Kelwood Cup is named so due to Margaret's maiden name being Kelynack and as previously mentioned Harry's surname is Woodhouse, join the 2 together = Kelwood!

Gareth Churcher, Festival Artistic Director, said "It is great to have this additional award on offer this year to the boys choirs. The opportunity to acknowledge a really entertaining performance adds another level of enjoyment for all involved in this very special event and my sincerest thanks go to Harry and Margaret for their kind donation".

The Youth International Gala Concert and Competition is being held as part of the 2019 CIMCF and takes place at Truro Cathedral on Sunday the 5th of May from 12:30pm. Please come along and support this and as many of the other events that are happening across Cornwall from the 2nd to the 6th of May.
