Entering the competition for the first time, the young contingent got the judges nod over 10 other choirs, and walked away with the first place trophy and $400. The carolers wooed the massive crowd with their renditions of “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” which won them best traditional carol. The group also thrilled the gathering with an original piece entitled “Christmas days at Customs.”

The Western Carolers, who gave the crowd much to cheer for, came in second position. The dynamic group secured the award for the best original entitled “This Christmas season.”

Defending champions Port Police had to settle for the third position with their songs “Angels we have heard on high” and “We defending.”

Her Majesty’s Prisons Carolers walked away with the best speech category, while Combined Carolers won the award for the “Best turned out choir.”

Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves, Commissioner Keith Miller and Inspector Jonathon Nicholls also offered brief remarks.

The other choirs participating in the competition were: The Auxiliary Serenaders, Cadet Carolers, Coast Guard, South Eastern Carolers, Old Oak Blenders and Traffic Angels. (KW)
