Singing has always been a major part of Hastings Musical Festival. In 2011 there were 21 sessions of singing with 88 classes for solos, duets, ensembles and choirs in a variety of styles. We encourage wide participation of all age groups and abilities, and have classes ranging from those aimed at novice singers, who may never have sung at a Festival, through to our medal classes for experienced singers, both junior and adult.
We aim to continue to broaden the appeal of our Singing Section, while maintaining a high standard of performance. Our challenge is to cater for the increasing interest in Show Song and Pop Vocals, while continuing to encourage singers to explore the varied classical repertoire.
