Three Choirs Festival at Buckingham Palace © Paul Burns

2015 marked the 300th anniversary of what is almost certainly the world’s oldest music festival, the Three Choirs Festival. The anniversary has been celebrated in style. In June members of the Festival Chorus travelled to Hamm in Germany to sing The Dream of Gerontius. The Festival itself was held in Hereford during the last week in July and many of the major events of a very successful week were reviewed by MusicWeb International Seen and Heard. The final event in the celebratory year occurred on 24 November with a gala performance in the Ballroom of Buckingham Palace, attended by HRH The Prince of Wales, President of the Three Choirs Festival.
