Three Choirs Festival - 28th July - 4th August 2018

 

The countdown has begun to the Three Choirs Festival 2018, this year set at the stunning Hereford Cathedral.

The Three Choirs Festival is a week-long programme of choral and orchestral concerts, cathedral services, solo and chamber music recitals, masterclasses, talks, theatre, exhibitions and walks, rotating each summer between the beautiful English cathedral cities of Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester.

The greatest choral, orchestral and chamber music at the worlds oldest classical music festival.

 

The artistic director gives some details about what the week has in store:

Following performances of Mendelssohn's two great oratorios Elijah and St Paul at the 2016 and 2017 festivals, we complete our cycle of his major choral works with his Lobgesang, paired with Bruckner's Te Deum.

At the heart of the festival since its origins in the early 18th century, the Three Cathedral Choirs of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester combine for joint Evensongs and a performance of Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610, sure to be a highlight of the week.

The festival will end with Brahms' Requiem, in a programme including Parry's own Elegy for Brahms, and Parry's pupil Vaughan Williams' Toward the Unknown Region.

I hope you enjoy browsing the wider range of events on offer, and we look forward to seeing you in July!
