Competitor Comments

    Burton Vocal festival is a great way to assess and improve your singing skills.  The festival is friendly and aimed at all ages and seasoned and new singers. It's a great way to try out new styles with supportive and useful pointers given by experienced judges. Above all, I would recommend the Burton Vocal festival to singers as a way to experience singing in its truest form, without a character to hide behind.

Adjudicator Comments

    I enjoyed a wonderful day of singing at the Burton Competitive Festival. Whilst the standard was very high, the friendly and supportive atmosphere throughout the day ensured that all the participants were able to give of their best and the wide range of different classes allowed singers in all styles to showcase their skills.

    It was a great pleasure to adjudicate for the Burton Competitive Music Festival in 2021.  The online organisation was very well-handled and it was a pleasure to watch and hear the many talented performers who had prepared for the Festival.  The standard of performance was high across the board, with some inspiring and moving performances.  I hope to have a chance to adjudicate again at Burton (in person!) in the future.  Good luck to all performers with their future musical endeavors.
