Kudos to the UNH Concert Choir touring ensembles' excellent performances in two prestigious European competitions, the 13th Marktoberdorf International Choral Competition in Germany and the 2nd annual Mayo International Choral Competition in Ireland.

In the Irish competition, members of the Chamber Singers, led by Professor William Kempster, performed superbly in a pressure-packed finale, and were fortunate enough to be named overall competition winners at the Grand Gala Concert with which the Festival closed.
