The UK Choir Festival Brings Unique Singing Experiences to choirs and the general public in 2020
Now in its incredible 4th year, hailed by American Express Essentials as “one of the most awe-inspiring choral festivals of the world”, the UK Choir Festival is opening its doors for General Admission in 2020.
Featuring workshops by:
Jamie Wright, Craig Lees, Russell Scott, Ula Weber, Stephanie Oyerinde, Audrey Mattis,
Dan Ludford-Thomas, Mat Wright MBE and many more….
For the first time in the festival’s history we are opening the doors, not just to choirs, but to the general public, to give even more people the opportunities of being taught by some of the best workshop leaders in the country.
Launched in 2016, The UK Choir Festival is a festival aimed to support, train and bring choirs together in a beautiful setting where people can learn, develop and thrive.
Produced by Producer & Musical Director, Russell Scott, the festival was designed for choirs of all abilities, ages and style, no matter whether they are a local community choir, a cappella choir, school or university choir, gospel choir, choral society or barbershop choir.
The festival is non-competitive, but very much ‘hands-on’ for everyone to watch and learn from each other whilst being guided and developed by some of the best workshop leaders in the UK.
The festival has gone from strength to strength having held events in Monmouth, Exmouth, Chichester, St Albans, York and Manchester. 2020 sees further events in Brighton and Harrow.
Choirs have attended the festival from as far afield as Iceland, the USA and India.
Speaking ahead of the 2020 festival, producer, Russell Scott said: “I am thrilled the festival has been so popular and so life-changing to singers from all walks of life. We have clearly made a positive and emotional impact on singers from all types of communities and across all ages. It was my aim to bring communities together and get more people singing; to give them access to learning opportunities they wouldn’t necessarily have access to, from some of the greatest workshop leaders in the UK. And now we are opening the doors to the general public too! We can’t wait to bring the festival to even more people.”
