Brings Unique Singing Experience to The North West
FOLLOWING the success of the 2016 event
in St Albans, 'The UK Choir Festival' has announced 2 exciting events this year,
the first of which will take place in Manchester, from 8 July to 9 July 2017.
The UK Choir Festival was founded in 2016 and aims to support, train and bring
choirs together, allowing them to learn, develop and thrive in a truly unique
way. The festival is produced by highly experienced and passionate musical
director Russell Scott, who started his musical career in the London
Philharmonic Choir over 20 years ago. The UK Choir Festival is designed for
choirs of all abilities, age and style, ranging from local community choirs to
School or University choirs, barbershop and a cappella choirs.
This year, the entrants will have the pleasure of working with a number of
musical professionals throughout the workshops including Joanna Tomlinson;
conductor, singer and vocal trainer, Bazil Meade; founder of the World famous
London Community Gospel Choir, and Ula Weber; conductor, teacher trainer and
The 2 day event (8 July to 9 July 2017) will see each choir take part in a range of
coaching sessions with professional coaches, alongside several chances to
perform in front of an audience and receive performance feedback. For platinum
members, this will also involve 1 to 1 feedback and a Q&A session with the
workshop leaders, giving the groups the best opportunity to progress and grow.
The UK Choir Festival promises to be a fun, informative and exciting event that
involves, both practical and method teaching with mass choral singing,
demonstrations and final performances. The festival is completely unique in the
way that it is non-competitive, yet offers the chance to learn new techniques,
develop performance and hear top tips to allow the choirs to be the very best
Speaking ahead of the event in Manchester, Russell said:- "I am so
thrilled that we are expanding The UK Choir festival and bringing it Manchester
this summer. In 2016, we had a vast range of choirs enter from all walks of life
from across the country and many even said it helped them with struggles that
they were having elsewhere in their lives, which is possibly the most rewarding
part. The choirs will be coached by some of the best workshop leaders in the UK
and we can't wait to see the development and improvement in the choirs as a
result of attending this event!"
