The International Choral Festival and Competition

Featuring performances from over 20 countries, the International Choral Festival and Competition brings together some of the most exciting choral traditions from around the world.

 “I’m delighted to be part of the jury for this competition and let me first thank all of the choirs for their excellent performances. This is such an important time for all of us from around the world to work together, to share and understand each other’s cultures and there’s no means more appropriate and powerful to achieve that aim than music.” Mervyn Cousins, Deputy Chief Examiner, ABRSM
