Perfect Pitch is one of the best junior choral groups in the country, reaching the Barnardos 2016 & 2017 choir finals performing at the prestigious London Royal Festival Hall, singing at the Music for Youth Prom at the Royal Albert Hall, winning 'Outstanding Choir of the Day' at Choir of the Year 2016, seeing them through to the Children's Choir Of The Year finals in October, held at The Birmingham Symphony Hall. In June 2017 the choir gained national success performing to over 9 million viewers on the Britain's Got Talent semi - finals.
2019 was an exciting year with the choir having a fantastic time when they sang with Musical Theatre group Collabro at the Buxton Opera House in February. The children were also invited to perform at the Sheffield City Hall in a charity gig with special guests Gary Barlow & Alfie Boe. They then returned to the Sheffield City Hall in April to join the world famous Kingdom Choir on their debut tour. Another highlight for Emma and the choir this year was filming the BBC Songs Of Praise Young Choir Of The Year Finals. After an intense final Perfect Pitch were crowned winners and now hold the title BBC Songs Of Praise Young Choir Of The Year 2019.
