Milltown Sound are a International Award Winning Small Chorus located in Golborne near Wigan in the North West of England. We range in age from 14 – 73.
We formed in March 2009 and chartered with Sweet Adelines International Region 31 in January 2010. We are a competing group who enter local, regional and international competitions.
In May 2010 we competed in our regional contest at The Sage in Gateshead, winning our first ever gold medal as small chorus. Our high score gave us the opportunity to take part in the Harmony Classic International Contest.
October 2011 saw us travel to Houston, Texas and we were placed 5th Small Chorus in the World! We were also the first Region 31 chorus to bring home international medals.
In July 2013 we competed at the world renowned Llangollen International Eisteddfod and were overwhelmed to win the Barbershop Class against some excellent competitors.
Our Musical Director Kim Pottor took over the reigns in July 2013. Kim is a founder member of Milltown Sound and has been the Tenor Section Leader since the chorus formed. Kim has been singing Barbershop for 15 years and has achieved International success in a previous Sweet Adelines Quartet.
In May 2014 we were thrilled to achieve 1st place small chorus at the Region 31 contest at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham.
