Love to sing in a Surrey choir that is part of a wider community?
Why not join one of the twelve choral societies that are part of the Festival family? None of the choirs audition, and they’re all very friendly.
If you can’t commit to joining a choir, independent singers are welcome to sing with us in our March concert, but you’ll need to attend the rehearsals. They’re part of the fun and an important opportunity to learn the music in depth and enable us to deliver a polished performance.
If you’re under the age of 18, why not ask your choir leader if they’d like to bring your school or youth choir to our Youth Choirs’ competition?
Since its foundation in 1905, the community spirit of the Festival has been a priority. When the Festival was founded in 1905 by Evangeline Farrer and Margaret Vaughan Williams, whose famous brother Ralph was Festival Conductor for nearly 50 years, their idea was that everybody who wanted to should be able to take part. It united the workers from the fields with the lords of the manor and has been a successful formula to this day.
