THE NORTH OF ENGLAND FESTIVAL CHORUS

The choral-orchestral concert always takes place in a major venue. These have been Guildford Cathedral or the Dorking Halls (made famous by the great Ralph Vaughan Williams). In 2010 the Chorus performed in Winchester Cathedral, and in 2018 the G Live Arts Centre in Guildford. The 2019 venue is Chester Cathedral.

I was really nervous about my own ability at the outset but long before the end of the week I felt that I had grown in choral stature and confidence.
