“One of the most awe-inspiring choral festivals of the world”


Inspiring Workshops. Inspiring Workshop Leaders. Inspiring Choirs.

The Joint Session

Our exciting changes includes the introduction of The Joint Session where our 4 amazing workshop leaders come together for a 75min session working on a single piece in mass and masterclass styles.  This collaborative session brings together the talent and expertise of all our workshop leaders of the day in an engaging and hugely interactive session for everyone to enjoy.

Even more to Platinum Sessions

Platinum Sessions have always played a big part in the festival with invaluable 1-2-1 feedback and Q & A with our workshop leaders.  We are excited to expand this further as we split the sessions into 2, so each choir receives 2x 20min sessions each with 2 workshop leaders, giving more value than ever before and much less waiting time as we work on 2 sessions at a time. Don’t miss the opportunity.
