3 Choirs Festival

      
Hereford Herefordshire England
Description : 

The Three Choirs Festival has its origins at the end of the 17th century in visits by the lay clerks of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester to one another's cathedrals for joint services and informal singing. More formal annual 'music meetings' can be traced back to around 1715 and have continued ever since, interrupted only by the two world wars, making this the oldest continuously running classical music festival in the world. The event rotates between the three cathedral cities on a three-year cycle. The next festival takes place in Hereford 28 July - 4 August 2018 and is the 291st Three Choirs Festival.

The Three Choirs Festival Chorus is largely drawn from auditioned members of choral societies in Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester, with the largest contingent each year coming from the host city. Amateur choral singers have been taking part in the festival since the middle of the 19th century to augment the cathedral choirs of boy trebles and male altos, tenors and basses.

The heart of the festival will once again be the Festival Hub, located in Hereford Cathedral School, where concert-goers and passers-by can find hot and cold meals as well as a bar and cafe, a free art exhibition and a friendly place to meet friends or spend a quiet moment.

Families are also welcome, with plenty of events for children, including an introduction to the wind quintet with the Magnard Ensemble, a dark retelling of Hansel and Gretel performed by the Goldfield Ensemble for teens and adults, shadow puppet storytelling with string quartet, and drama, drumming and puppetry workshops.
