We held a highly successful sell-out choral workshop, directed by Andrea Brown, in January. Attracting 170 participants from across the country,

the work studied was Edward Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius which the Exeter Festival Chorus will be performing in Exeter Cathedral on 15th July 2023. Please click to see details of our concert and a short video of the workshop. <style="font-size: large"> Tickets will launch in mid-February with early bird offers and concessions. Keep an eye on the concert page!

Here are some of the comments made by visiting workshop participants:

“I attended the Dream of Gerontius Workshop yesterday and would like to pass on my thanks and admiration for the whole day.  I would not be able to sing this piece with either of the choirs I sing with because they are too small.”

“From the minute I arrived when I was greeted and orientated, to the end of the day when I was wished well for my journey home, the organisation was perfect.  The catering arrangements were really efficient, and the panettone was a delicious treat.  The whole day was so well organised that it didn't feel as if it had been, which for me is the marker of true efficiency!”

“Thanks so much to you and your entire team for a really fantastic day singing one of my all-time favourite works. I really appreciated how well thought out everything was.”

“Thank you so much for the excellent choral workshop I attended on Saturday. The Musical Director was informative, clear, knowledgeable and provided excellent cues and clear tempi. I would rate Andrea as one of the best Choral Directors I have sung with.”
