About the Brandenburg Choral Festival

The 2013 Festival launches its biggest programme yet, with 66 concerts over four months in nine central London venues, more choirs than ever before, and the support of a new Artistic Patron, John Rutter CBE.

In only four seasons the Festival has grown from a small selection of concerts at St Martin-in-the-Fields in 2010 to become a major landmark event, featuring choirs from across England and beyond.

In total 71 choirs will be appearing, covering a huge range of vocal styles, including: choral masterpieces with orchestral accompaniment by Handel, Haydn, Mozart and Monteverdi; a cappella classics by Tallis, Allegri and Rachmaninov; Requiems by Fauré, Duruflé, Mozart, John Rutter and Karl Jenkins; music for Holy Week and works from the English Cathedral tradition. By contrast there are also jazz ensembles, barbershop groups, gospel choirs and male voice choirs.
