One of the most exciting sections of WCAF is the choirs. It is fantastic to see and hear people of all ages, abilities and experience singing all different styles of music in choirs of all sizes.

All competitive and non-competitive performance opportunities will take place on Saturday 9th March. 

Within the vocal syllabus you will find details of the  competitive and non-competitive sections for choirs. Choir sections are split by age. Open classes are open to anyone, of any age. 

If we receive enough entries, we will split the classes by the size of the group and style of music and for school choirs, we may split the age groups further.

Singers may also wish to enter some of the other vocal sections, including solo, duet and unaccompanied sections.


The above link to the syllabus is only for the vocal sections. The combined festival syllabus can be found here.

Entries MUST be made online via Play&Perform.

There are several special classes that string players may also wish to enter:

  • Performers aged 6 or under may wish to enter the Party Piece class. 

  • More advanced performers may wish to enter the William Lewis Recital class. Entrants to this class should prepare a 15-minute recital of 2 or more contrasting pieces. 

  • The Marian Baker memorial class is another recital class for which a minimum standard of Grade 6 on two contrasting pieces is required.

  • The Sproule class is for performers up to the age of 15. Competitors must perform a poem or an acted scene AND a song or a piece of music on any instrument.
