Bolton Festival Choir & Orchestra

Bolton Parish Church

Bolton Festival Choir was established in 1994, with the aim of offering local singers the opportunity to perform works that they were unlikely to sing with their own choirs, and to learn music in a relatively short time.  Rehearsals take place for just three weeks in August with a concert at the end of the month.  Conducted by John Powell the choir achieves a remarkable standard in such a short rehearsal time. 

The choir has a Singing Day in April and also incorporates the Phoenix Choir that meets on Saturday mornings to sing a wide range of music from madrigals through to 20th century part songs. 
There are no auditions for the choir: if you would like to join just contact one of the committee - details are on the website.
