2020 Christchurch Choral Festival
October 25, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
A Christchurch Choral Festival, lasting about one hour, will be held in the Catholic Pro-Cathedral, 373 Manchester Street, Christchurch, 3.00 p.m. on Sunday 25th October 2020. The Catholic Pro-Cathedral offers ample space at the front, suitable for large choral forces, and seating is available for an audience of at least 500, although the performers will use a proportion of that during the concert.
This will be the tenth festival in a developing tradition for the city, intended to sustain and strengthen separate choirs with an annual opportunity to share repertoire on a larger scale.
Admission will be free, and participants will pay nothing. There will be no interval, and the concert should last one hour. All performers should be in place by 1.30 p.m. on the day, to rehearse the concluding combined item: Beethoven’s Hallelujah Chorus, from his oratorio Mount of Olives.
