Festival 2023 – The 20th Burton Competitive Music Festival


Sunday 5th March 2023

This year marks 20 years since our President and Vice Chairman, Coral and John Gould, founded the The Burton Competitive Vocal Festival. During those 20 years, we have endured a global pandemic, had a name to change to The Burton Competitive Music Festival, introduced several new classes, including the introduction of Piano classes in 2022, and most importantly, been witness to incredible talent.

This year, we welcome two new adjudicators to the festival: Lesley Shrigley Jones and Gabrielle Burgin Lister. Our 2023 syllabus can provide more information about the adjudicators’ experience and accomplishments.

Whilst most of the 2023 syllabus remains the same as last year, we have made a few changes. Head to our syllabus page for more details.

We hope to attract a similar number of entrants to our pre- pandemic levels, if not more, and we encourage you to spread the word on our behalf.

If you have any questions about anything, please send us a message here or email burtonvocalfestival@gmail.com and one of the team will get back to you.

A full syllabus and detailed plan of the 2023 Festival can be found here.
