The Choir, known as "Festiva" or Guernsey's Festival Chorus and Community choir, celebrated its 30th
anniversary in 2015!
The Choir is always looking to recruit new members. We would like to see numbers
increase by 25% with an all-age 'family feel' grouping, particularly with the aim of adding more under 40s. No
experience required; no auditions
just a love of singing biblically-based songs, hymns and psalms - all styles of
music. Full training and support is given.
We meet for rehearsals at Blanchelande College on
Monday evenings at 7.30pm.

All necessary training and support will be provided, including workshops to help bring out the best in you. Just come
and rehearse with us at Blanchelande College on Monday evenings at 7.30pm. It is, however, important that you

decide whether to join!
We welcome all singers but this year
seem to be particularly short of sopranos - N.B ability to reach 'top A' is not a pre-requisite!
are often written-off as singers at school when they are told that they are spoiling the choir and told to go and play football
instead" says Roy Sarre. "But pretty much everyone can sing if given the right encouragement and, who knows, perhaps
there are one or two Pavarottis or Domingos walking around Guernsey unaware of the talent they possess."
