Chester Festival Chorus celebrates 2013 anniversaries with performances of Handel and Britten in Chester Cathedral - for details click here
This is the home of the Chester Festival Chorus. Every year from May onwards we work hard to prepare for our annual appearance in the Chester Music Festival in the glorious setting of Chester Cathedral. Over the years we’ve had a chance to sing with many world renowned orchestras, conductors and soloists. Look through the site for information about the choir, our past and future concerts, as well as information on how you can join us!
In 2012 the chorus worked again with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and their charismatic chief conductor Vasily Petrenko in a performance of Brahms’ Requiem on Friday July 6th. It was a fantasic experience for all concerned! For a couple of reviews click here and here.
2013 will be the first Chester Festival under the aegis of Chester Performs. It will provide two chances to hear the chorus. On June 1st, the day the 60th anniversary of the Queen's Coronation, we will be performing Handel's Coronation Anthems in celebration. To celebrate the centenary of Benjamin Britten's birth we will then be performing his cantata St. Nicolas later in the year (watch this space for details).
