April sees three consecutive Festival days at the Dorking Halls, each consisting of competitions between four of our member choirs in the morning, followed by an afternoon rehearsal for a concert by the combined choirs in the evening.
Why not come and watch the competitions and support your local choral society? There’s a great variety of music performed including an "own choice" by each choir (entry by programme only £3). Friends and Patrons can also watch the rehearsals in the afternoons.
The evening concerts are, of course, special highlights, with the performances conducted by our Festival Conductor, Jonathan Willcocks, and supported by professional orchestras and young soloists of the highest calibre. There is also a special guest each evening who presents the awards for the competitions.
