BEIJING, CHINA — The Bahamas National Children’s Choir scored a bronze level, at the 11th China International Chorus Festival and International Federation of Choral Music World Choral Summit, in Beijing, China, on July 21, 2012.

This is the first time the choir took part in the Festival and it was the only choir from the Caribbean region and the only choir of colour out of the 166 choirs and nearly 10,000 in attendance.
