It is a great pleasure to share with you the exciting details of Durham Vocal
Festival 2018. Now in it’s second year, this year’s festival promises to be
even more exciting than the last, celebrating the very best that vocal
music has to offer.
DVF 2018 showcases many differing styles of vocal music with fantastic
artists such as Roderick Williams, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment,
Mahogany Opera Group and Will Todd. Performances range from Choral
Music of North East based chamber choirs to a semi-staged performance of
Purcell’s The Fairy Queen in Durham Cathedral.
Heritage and tradition sit side by side with modern vocal performance skills
from the beautiful Candlemas at Durham Cathedral to the acapella evening
featuring Northern Lights from Durham University and Urban Voice from
This year will feature the inaugural community choir concert at Durham
Cathedral featuring 12 community choirs and artists in residence the
world famous vocal ensemble Apollo5.
This event would not be possible without numerous partners and sponsors,
including Arts Council England, Durham Music Service and Trust and
