ChoirBLAST is an annual festival celebration of contemporary choirs from around the UK and hopefully internationally. It is a non-competitive festival-feel day, celebrating live music, local organisations and the choir community.
Phoebe Gaydon, the owner of A Touch Of Musicality, a local independent music school based in Godalming along with her husband Matt, discovered there were no opportunities for her choirs to perform on a big stage which didn’t involve entering a competition. After being invited to Freiburg in Germany to take part in Chorwarts, their choir festival, she decided that something had to be done. She wanted choirs from all over the UK to have the same opportunities as those across Europe. Therefore, ChoirBLAST was born. Phoebe runs three local choirs and two choirs for local charities.
Designed as a non-profit event, we will be donating any proceeds to support a number of charities chosen by the choirs performing on the day.
Our 2023 event welcomed 2000 visitors to watch 26 choirs over 3 stages and raised over £2000 for our chosen charities.
For 2024, we have big plans to smash those targets - please help us to do that!
