The Big Give 2022

Three Choirs - The Big Give Christmas Challenge

The Big Give Christmas Challenge live!

This year the Three Choirs Festival is raising funds for the Festival Voices, a brand new choir specifically for the Three Choirs Festival community.

What is the Festival Voices?

Designed both for singers who can’t commit to a full festival week and those who don’t yet feel ready for our auditioned chorus, the Three Choirs Festival Voices will sing one evening concert at Gloucester 2023. There will be two rehearsal routes – one for more experienced and confident singers with limited time, and one for those who welcome a slower pace of rehearsal. A great way to develop your choral experience and have a first taste of performing at the festival.
