About The Event
Chanteuse are very proud to be taking part in the Peterborough International Women's Choral Festival over the weekend of 16th to 18th June 2023.
The Festival will feature a gala concert at Peterborough’s spectacular Norman cathedral, competition classes, informal singing opportunities, workshops and seminars - with plenty of time for socialising and sightseeing - all centred around Peterborough’s scenic Cathedral Square with its vibrant café culture. Venues include the mediaeval Cathedral and parish church of St John the Baptist, as well as the city’s historic Museum and Town Hall, all within easy walking distance of each other in the pedestrianised city centre.
Practical workshops with international specialists will develop the creative and technical skills of singers and music leaders, while a series of seminars will explore the application of business methodologies to the various challenges facing women’s choirs today, including recruitment, retention, diversity, research, repertoire, commissioning, and more!
Women’s choirs and ensembles of all nationalities, sizes, ages and traditions are invited to join us for this wonderful weekend full of challenge, inspiration and new friendships as we support each other to be the best we can be through collaboration, performance and the exchange of ideas, celebrating the fantastic international community we all belong to!
It would be wonderful to see some of our supporters at the events, so if you would like to come along there are
more details, and a detailed programme including information about where to stay etc. available here:
