At the heart of the Three
Choirs Festival, and one of the elements which makes it so special, is the Three
Choirs Festival Chorus. Made up of mainly amateur but auditioned singers from
the local area, trained by professional directors, and working with world-class
conductors, soloists and orchestral performers, the Chorus not only sings to a
high standard but is also a real part of the community. It forms the
centrepiece of many of our large-scale concerts in the cathedral and many members
return to sing year after year.
"Everyone gets swept up in being part of something special and hugely significant"
The Chorus unites singers from across Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, and Worcestershire. The three contingents rehearse separately twice a week from early May and come together for massed rehearsals in the weeks running up to the festival at the end of July.
To sign up, or for more information about the process, please contact Stephen Greenwood.
Applications must be sent by 6 October. Auditions for the 2024 festival chorus will take place in mid-October.
