Choirs

Let’s get singing!

We are delighted that Jacqueline Barron and Simon Grant are jointly going to run the class and adjudicate.

This year’s choral competition (class 200) is open to choirs of any age group and voice type, with a minimum of six people singing. The 2021 competition will be online, with entrants submitting a video of their performance rather than performing live. Every choir will receive a written adjudication sheet and a certificate of participation. All entrants will be invited to a Zoom meeting on Saturday 1st May to hear a general adjudication and selected performances.

Sing two contrasting pieces lasting no longer than 8 minutes in total. All choirs from the UK or Ireland are welcome.

First Prize £200 plus a special arrangement of a popular piece/song dedicated to and exclusively written for the winning choir by our esteemed adjudicator, Simon Grant.

The closing date for the Choir Competition will be Sunday 21st March.

We have a new system for entries. Please click on the “How to Apply” link below for how to apply and for hints on creating an effective video performance. The first time that you use the new entry system, you will need to register. Entrants must also upload copies of the music.

If an entrant has been a pupil of the Adjudicator in the six-months prior to the Festival, they should contact the Section Head before entering.
