22 July to 29 July 2023, Gloucester
The Three Choirs Festival is a week of outstanding music making and community participation, rotating each summer between the beautiful cathedral cities of Gloucester, Hereford, and Worcester. Festival week is a unique, immersive experience – it’s not only about the evening concerts! Events take place throughout the day: discover something about the historic host city, then enjoy a family event with children and grandchildren, or take in an exhibition . Next, attend a free cathedral rehearsal, get on a coach for an afternoon concert in the surrounding countryside, and be back in time for evensong or a tea-time talk. Finish your day by listening to an awe-inspiring choral and orchestral performance in a glorious cathedral setting, followed by some jazz or folk music and a drink at one of our more informal late night events. With so much on offer, there really is something for everyone! Our concerts feature internationally recognised soloists and orchestras and combine classical choral favourites with the best new music of our time.
Three Choirs has a fantastic history and celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2015. Our aim is to share music making opportunities and the finest musical experiences with everybody. We look forward to welcoming you to the festival and hope that you will see for yourself why so many people come back to us year after year.
