Welcome to Compton & Shawford Festival Choir

Postponed NOT cancelled!,Verdi Requiem in Winchester Cathedral,27th February 2021

Compton and Shawford Festival Choir was founded on September 30th 1921, with the aim of joining all local choirs and singers to sing together as part of the Winchester and County Music Festival.

For 100 years uplifting concerts have been held in venues such as the beautiful Winchester Cathedral, and Romsey Abbey, giving all singers in the area the opportunity of singing major choral works together.

As this years’ WCMF concert was cancelled in the Cathedral, (Covid 19) CSFC feel it appropriate for them to celebrate their birthday with a performance of the cancelled concert, the Verdi Requiem, as the start of their celebrations next year. We can now announce that the date will be 27th February, in Winchester Cathedral.

CSFC is at present around 80 members and would like call on their singing friends to join them for this unique concert in their lovely singing “home”, making a chorus of around 200 singers.
