We are back for another exciting choir festival at Chelmsford’s Civic Theatre where we will be uniting choirs across Essex, Kent and London for a day of exciting workshops and uplifting evening concert.
The BIG Fest is hosted by ‘The BIG Sing’ Choir who currently has over 800 members across the South East. We at ‘The BIG Sing’ believe in uniting choirs, celebrating what makes us unique and appreciating one another. In 2013 we designed this event to unite everyone with music – not just our own choirs but with as many other singers and choirs that we could find! We were overjoyed to have other choirs join us from Kent, Essex and London.
After the BIG success of last year’s event we are back this year and have even more planned for this jammed packed day! And we would love for YOU to come and join us. You could be part of a choir or be someone who just loves to sing – The BIG FEST is open to everyone over the age of 12 years. (12-16 year olds must be accompanied by an adult).
We have two fantastic guest tutors lined up for the workshops including Bazil Meade, Founder & Principal of The London Community Gospel Choir and Daniel Thomas, a highly experienced Choir Director and tutor.
The schedule looks like this:
10am: KIDS Workshop – this is open to all kids aged 5 to 11 years
11:30am: Arrival, Welcome & Registration
11:45am: ‘Warm up’ session
12:15pm: Workshop One with Daniel Thomas
1:30pm: Lunch break

3pm: Workshop Two with Bazil Meade
5pm: Mass Singing Rehearsal
5:30pm: Dinner break & sound checks

If you are part of a choir then we would love for you to perform your own song in the evening concert. Each choir will take it in turns to sing with our live band of top musicians (or you can use your backing tracks/own pianist if you prefer). We will then be serenaded by our tutors before they lead us in the mass singing for the BIG finale! The mass songs will be taught during on the day in the workshops.
Tickets are only £20 per person for the whole day! This includes all of the workshops and evening show. You won’t want to miss this. We offer a discount of 50% for young people aged 12 to 16 years.
There are only 500 tickets available – so please hurry and reserve your place.
