Stratford-Upon-Avon Community choirs Festival Welcome to

What a splendid weekend! Over 500 singers from 20 choirs on Saturday and 480 singers from another 20 choirs on Sunday, coming from as far afield as London, Bedfordshire, Southampton, Sussex and Cheshire, and it was great to welcome some very local choirs too. We had a fabulous day of glorious singing, harmonizing, laughing and socialising, with 500 happy, excited singers congregating for the mass workshops. We learned Roger Jackson’s wonderful arrangement of ‘Sing John Ball’, by Sydney Carter, ‘Grateful and Loved’ by the lovely Alison Burns, a South African folk song, Thiba Koloi, and ‘Everything will be Alright’ as shared by the wonderful Kathy Bullock, all in four part a cappella harmony, led by our inspiring and talented workshop leaders.

Community Choirs Festival 2019 "Congratulations on an  Excellent Event!” A Celebration of  A Cappella Community Choirs  from the Midlands and Beyond "A Great Feel Good Day, A Highlight Of my Year!”

The Community Choirs Festival is a wonderful day of mass harmony singing workshops followed by a concert, by the choirs, for the choirs.


The festival is totally non-competitive, and seeks to celebrate the joy of singing in harmony  together.

 

The festival is open to any choir or singing group who welcome all voices without auditions and sing a cappella.


Whether you are a small group just starting out or a well established community choir, the festival offers a wonderful opportunity to sing with up to 500 like minded singers, in a relaxed, fun, friendly environment.
