Our festival has a special focus on getting young children involved in music for the first time. All our singers will be in school years 3-6 , and we have a class for newly formed choirs, as well as other classes for more experienced groups. The festival's aim is to help schools and choirs who would love to bring music into their children's lives but who may be prevented from doing so by lack of funds. So, there is no entry fee. A choir which has only been going for a few months can get top level professional appraisal and encouragement , plus a written report on their performance , all for free.
