County Councillor Peter Buckley, Lancashire County Council’s cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: “We knew Lancashire boasted many talented choirs, but the number and quality of entries we received this year has truly exceeded all our expectations.
“Our judges had a very difficult task in whittling all of the entries down to six, and now the public get to choose which choir is the true stand out for them.
“Singing is a great way of bringing people of all ages and backgrounds together, and I look forward to seeing how the public vote in the People’s Choice category.
“It’s the fun of taking part that matters most, and I want to once again thank everyone who entered this year’s competition.
