Solo singing classes are available for all adult voices, as well as for girls and boys. There are separate classes in opera, oratorio and recital for music students or graduates and for amateur singers, so that performers can compete on an equal footing. In addition there are classes for lieder and art song, folk song, light operatic & musicals, sacred song and vocal duets.

This year singing classes will be held at Hampstead Garden Suburb Free Church, Central Square, NW11 7AG

Prizes and Certificates

There is a Festival Singing Trophy for the most outstanding performance in the four major classes, and challenge cups for the best performers of Folk Song and British Art Song. In other classes there are gold, silver and bronze medals to be won, and every competitor will receive a written adjudication sheet and certificate of participation. Cups will also be awarded to the most promising and the most outstanding male and female singers over 17 years, and to the most noteworthy junior singer.

The Song Recital, Operatic and Oratorio classes are repeated on separate days so that conservatoire students are kept separate from those who sing for the love of it, to ensure they can compete on an equal footing.
