For your chance to perform in Festival ’17, treat yourself to an uplifting session with dynamic young choral director Ben Vonberg-Clark, who welcomes all ages and abilities for a day of singing, exercise, socialising and learning something new in warm, comfortable surroundings.
No need to read music or have sung before – come and see what this feel-good craze is all about!

Repertoire will include Eric Whitacre’s A Boy and A Girl and Handel’s Zadok the Priest.
Following the main Come & Sing day, there will be two further rehearsals ahead of the Festival Finale on Sunday 1 October. The Finale is a wonderful coming together of local enthusiasts, schoolchildren and other music makers, backed by our wonderful Festival Orchestra of players from the world stage. Your chance to sing in the spell-binding acoustics of Stoke by Nayland’s vertiginous wool church of St Mary.
