Festival Description

Billed as "the Oscars of choral singing," the aptly-named Big Night of Choral Singing features singers of all persuasions and styles, including soloists, university choirs, and even, in 2005, a retired Senegalese bishop. The evening concert is an extravaganza of the art form, with many choirs taking part.

Festival Dates August 5 - 9, 2009
