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

UK CHOIR FESTIVAL IS BACK in 2022

Inspiring Workshops. Inspiring Workshop Leaders. Inspiring Choirs.

New for 2022

The Joint Session

2022 sees 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 toegther 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 1-2-1 feedback and Q & A with our workshop leaders.
2022 will see this expand further as we split the sessions into 2, so each choir receives 2 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.

Welcome

Presented by Russell Scott
