An all-female choir from Menai has won first place at a big choir competition in Sydney – collecting $4000 in the process.

The Endeavour Harmony Chorus finished first at the recent John Lamble Foundation Australasian Open Choral Championship, organised by Sydney Eisteddfod.

It is the second year running the choir has won the competition held at Sydney Grammar School.

The Australian Choral Grand Prix will be held at Sydney Grammar School on Sunday, August 20 at 2.30pm.
