Blackheath Choir Festival has been warming the tail end of winter in the Blue Mountains since 2007. It’s not a competition, it’s all about the music and it’s free for choirs to sing.

Bring your choir to Blackheath Choir Festival and expect a warm welcome, a well-organised program awaiting your contribution and opportunities to listen to, be inspired by and meet up with many other choristers from the Blue Mountains, Sydney and beyond.

Come to Blackheath Choir Festival as an audience member and expect modestly priced concert tickets and inspired performances representing a huge variety in musical styles.

Special features this year include:

  • Festival Chorus – a beautiful baroque/renaissance program directed by London-based conductor James Dixon. Details to come.
  • SHiNDiG – a singalong and jam session, expertly directed by Ben Marshall. BYO instrument and/or voice. Open to audience members and singers alike.
