2:04pm Monday 2nd September 2013 in Latest News
Every Sunday in September the National Trust’s Stourhead will be hosting its annual Festival of the Voice, with singers and choirs performing in different locations around the grounds of this world-famous garden.
More than 40 melodic groups comprising of 1,200 individual performers will be providing a wide range of vocal entertainment from traditional classics to folk and jazz.
Each performance will be set against the romantic back-drop of the grassy glades, courtyards and classical temples that make up Stourhead.
"This is the first time we have held this popular event over five consecutive Sundays," said Charlotte Toop, visitor experience officer at Stourhead.
"It is a celebration of song ranging from Bach to the Beatles. There really is something for everyone."
She added: "Even if you know the garden like the back of your hand, this festival gives you the chance to explore it in a different way, with new sounds, voices and melodies in the air. It truly is a magical experience."
Festival of the Voice singers will be performing each Sunday in September between 11am and 4pm in different locations at Stourhead.
There is no additional charge for The Festival of the Voice event, and entry to the garden remains free for National Trust members.
