Aled Jones presents highlights from the latest round of Choir of the Year 2010, which took place at Birmingham Symphony Hall earlier this month.

Whittled down from over one hundred and fifty entrants, just sixteen choirs made it through to the Category Finals. The stakes were high, with choirs competing to win both their category and a place in the Grand Final at the Royal Festival Hall. Today it's the turn of choirs in the Youth and Adult Categories to try to impress the judges.
