The Cathedrals Group of Universities is proud to present the 2018 Choirs Festival. This year’s festival is hosted by Birmingham’s Newman University and will feature performances by some of the country’s best university choirs. Alongside performances by each of the individual choirs, this year’s festival will include a stirring massed choir performance of Berlioz’s epic requiem mass: Grande Messe des Morts, conducted by Derek Wroughton, featuring soloist Stephen Mills and accompanied by the Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra. This promises to be a joyful and uplifting event for everyone to enjoy.
