Choir Wars

Blame it on the BBC. As if the world did not have enough television contests to find the best singers, dancers and "talents", Britain's BBC One had to invent Choir Wars in 2007 to find the best choral ensembles in that fair land. The program did survive one season under the name Last Choir Standing and then mercifully disappeared.

But, like the famous whac-a-mole, Choir Wars is back - this time in Lithuania where the show is known as Chorų karai. And we wouldn't be talking about this if Piazzolla's Libertango did not make the finals. So here they are, the Kauno šampaninis choras going for the gold with Libertango in today's featured video.

Did they win? Yes, they did and the choir will spend the rest of the year touring Lithuania and abroad. I suspect that Libertango will make an appearance at all of their concerts. If you enjoy the showmanship and music of this choir, you can find several more of their performances at this YouTube Channel.
