SUMMER SUNDAE FESTIVAL CHOIR

Following the success of last year's event, which saw amateur singers who had never met before give a near professional performance to a packed out audience, the Summer Sundae Festival Choir is back! If you love singing and are already in possession of a weekend ticket for the festival, email summersundaechoir@gmail.com listing your name, contact and experience before 1stAugust 2012 to take part!

Led by choral conductor and vocalist Hannah Brine, rehearsals will take place on the Friday afternoon, Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon, leading to a live performance on the Sunday on the festival's Main Stage. This will be a very special performance and there might even be some animal magic involved here too!
