Local youth choir Shallaway won top marks in a prestigious international competition in Hungary this past weekend.

After advancing through the first round, Shallaway’s Camerata Ensemble completed the Béla Bartok International Choral Competition in Hungary with the highest marks in the equal voice category, earning three standing ovations.

There were no first place awards recognized in the children’s choir, youth mixed choir or equal voice categories, but Camerata received the second-highest marks in the competition overall.

Made of up students between ages 13 and 18, Camerata performed pieces from their repertoire as well as test pieces assigned by the Bartok organization.

Artistic director Kellie Walsh said in a media release the members of ensemble are ecstatic with their performance.
