Despite this, the Chanterelles derive much satisfaction from singing together at such a high standard and their professionalism and proficiency is evident in their music ... Many of the members had previously sung together in the Chanterelles’ previous incarnation as a youth choir through Leicestershire Arts in Education. This non-auditioned all-girls choir came to an end in 2001 after a decade singing together’.
