A Derbyshire women’s chorus has returned from Las Vegas with a silver medal after wowing judges during a competition.

DaleDiva starred on the world famous MGM Grand stage and were rewarded for their 15-minute showing at the World Championships.

The group, which was formed by musical director Ally Law in 2007, was selected for the event after winning at national competition level in May last year.

The group’s performance in the Harmony Classic competition earned them a score of 1,249 – just a single point behind the gold medal winners.

“Even to have earned a place in the World Championships was an amazing achievement so to win a silver medal in our debut international competition just one point behind the winners was incredible,” said Ally.

“It’s been 18 months of hard work and dedication leading up to this event and it’s been such an adventure.

“I’m bursting with pride at our achievement and it will take us all a few weeks to come back down to earth.

“We hope we’ve made our county and our country proud by representing them among the best in the world.

“The chorus competed against stiff competition from the USA and want to say huge congratulations to the winners and all the competitors.”

Ally added: “It was a privilege to share that amazing stage with them.”
