Saturday 7th August – Sunday 15th August 2010
 
The Three Choirs Festival, held each year since the early eighteenth century, and rotating between the three great cathedral cities of Gloucester, Worcester and Hereford is one of the world’s oldest classical choral music festivals. This heritage has long established the Festival as a firm fixture in the British music calendar and a must-visit for lovers of the great choral works from across Britain, Europe, America and Australasia.

The festival returns to Gloucester this August with an excellent line up. 

Each festival provides an attached Festival Club, traditionally run by the “Friends” of the home festival, which provides a central social venue for audience and performers alike, as well as food and drink in a welcoming and hospitable atmosphere.

The focus of this week-long festival is the concert each evening in the cathedral, with programmes that combine established favourites of the British classical choral tradition with works drawn from a broader, more international musical canvas. These are supported by outstanding daytime
programmes of recitals, chamber music, opera, theatre, organ recitals, jazz, lectures, exhibitions and educational workshops. We bring together the “Festival Chorus” with an exciting blend of the top international orchestras, ensembles and artists of our time alongside vibrant young performers and
groups. Our aim is to combine excellence in performance with popular involvement and musical education, not just in and around each cathedral, but throughout each city and surrounding community.
