Two city festivals are teaming up to create a 250-strong choir. The Lichfield Festival and the Lichfield Arts Fuse Festival is hoping to create the City Sing partnership in time for a performance in July. Singers are being invited to join choirs from across the region and a visiting group from Estonia at a series of workshops ahead of the big performance. Jennifer Mears, executive director for the Lichfield Festival, said: “With the two festivals running over the same weekend, we have been working closely to ensure there is something for everyone. “City Sing gives everyone a chance to enjoy participating in the arts without any need for prior experience. It is just one of a series of events and projects running over the weekend that the whole family can enjoy.” The project will also see participants working alongside Birmingham-based choir leaders Vocal Point. Natasha Hettihewa-Young, co-director of the Lichfield Arts Fuse Festival, added: “The great thing about this partnership is that it is based on supporting the community, celebrating local talent and providing new opportunities to engage with the arts.” Further more details on City Sing visit www.lichfieldfestival.org or call 01543 306270.
