Queen's representative presents world record to oldest choir
2:45pm Monday 16th December 2013 in News
MEMBERS of the oldest choir in the world have been presented with Guinness World Record certificates.
Staff, family and friends gathered at St John’s House care home, at Kirk Hammerton, near York, to be entertained by the choir and to congratulate the singers who, with an average age of 91, had broken the previous world record by ten years.
Before receiving their awards, the choir sang songs from their first CD, before finishing their performance with Do-Re-Mi, from the Sound Of Music.
The record certificates were presented by the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of North Yorkshire Air Commodore William Gambold, who retired after the event following 12 years in the role.
He told members of the choir: “All around the world there’ll be other choirs trying to take the record off you, so keep going now.”
