About Choir of the Year

Choir of the Year is a UK-wide choral competition open to any amateur choir of between 8 and 100 singers. Founded in 1984, it celebrates our world-class choral tradition through a series of live events and BBC television and radio broadcasts.

Every two years Choir of the Year brings together choirs of all ages, music styles and backgrounds for a series of live Audition days. This is a great opportunity for choirs to pick up new performance and repertoire ideas, sing to a large audience and be supportive critics of each other. Our expert judges are tasked with providing constructive feedback which highlight choirs' qualities and achievements as well as suggestions for further development.

We would encourage any choir come along and take part, be they experienced competitors or a new group wanting to try a new challenge.

Following the Auditions, the best choirs go forward to the Finals and national acclaim. Many of our past winners have told us how success in the competition has opened up a range of exciting performance, broadcast and recording opportunities.

All our events are open to the public and include group warm-ups and singing for all the audience, so that friends and family can get involved too.
