30th June 2012 - 12th July 2012
A truly international music festival with an exciting range of music, ideas and extraordinary artistic talent, with over 30 events in 13 days this festival is not to be missed
As a Festival of the Voice, we have wonderful singers and choral groups including our own Chester Festival Chorus performing across a whole spectrum of music. But we’ll also showcase the explosion of talent from the Far East; we’ll revel in the music of the Great Romantics; we’ll showcase masters of their art in a wide range of musical genres. We’ll even have a festival within a festival; Let’s Hear It! - a weekend of non-stop music designed for music lovers, casual listeners, the young, the old and the curious from the bite size to the full-length concert. It’s a total immersion for the musical spirits, a gourmet experience for the musical taste buds, and it is all served up in the glorious historic City of Chester. Tickets go on sale from April 1.
Quote from Andrew Cornall, Artistic Director:
'Whether it is choral, cabaret, chamber music, folk or glorious orchestral concerts, I believe there is something to enjoy and something to discover for everyone.'
