It’s a phenomenon unparalleled in the world: the way that in the Baltic states, thousands of people gather in the open air to celebrate their community in song. For Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla the Baltic Song Festivals have been a formative musical experience: now, together with the CBSO, CBSO Chorus and SO Vocal choir, plus guest choirs drawn from throughout the region, she brings that same life-affirming tradition to Birmingham. And everyone can take part!
Don’t miss the West Midlands’ finest choirs as they come together in the afternoon for an unmissable live performance. Compered by CBSO favourite Tom Redmond, the CBSO Chorus, SO Vocal and the University of Birmingham choir will perform alongside a selection of guest choirs that showcase the variety and talent that our singing masses represent. Bringing the celebrations to a show-stopping evening finale, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra plays an exciting programme of British and Baltic music, performed live with everyone who has taken part.
Further details of how your choir can participate to be announced in Spring 2019.
