Piedmont East Bay Children's Choir (PEBCC) competed in two categories at the 2017 International Musical Eisteddfod, held July 3-9 in Llangollen, Wales, United Kingdom, winning second place in both the Children's Folk Song Choir competition and the Senior Children's Choir competition. The festival, a 70-year-old cultural event that draws participants from around the world, took place in a massive pavilion, broadcast by the BBC and Llangollen TV. PEBCC competed against and admired other choirs from all parts of the world, with everyone coming together at the end in a parade of nations through the town of Llangollen. The event capped out a two-week trip to England and Wales for PEBCC, with stops in London, Cambridge and Sutton Coldfield.
