UK Choir Festival comes to York

This month the UK Choir Festival comes to York! On Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May, 250 choristers will descend on St Olave’s School to participate in the event with learning and great music making at its heart.

Created to support, train and bring choirs together, the UK Choir Festival is a non-competitive event. This all-inclusive festival is open to all types of choirs, including community choirs, gospel choirs, barbershop choirs, a cappella choirs, youth choirs and choral societies.

Hailed by American Express Essentials as one of the most “Awe-Inspiring Choral Festivals of the World”, the UK Choir Festival enhances the city’s arts and culture scene by giving choirs the opportunity to learn from the UK’s very best workshop leaders.

The festival runs throughout 2019 across the UK, with events already taking place in Chichester and Manchester, as well as future events taking place in Exmouth, Monmouth and St Albans.

‘I am thrilled the festival has been so popular and so life-changing to singers from all walks of life across the UK,’ said Russell Scott, Producer.
