Choirs: Join a historic performance of Dan’s new CREATION oratorio in iconic Ely Cathedral, June 18-20, 2025, with Vox Anima London. Spend three days rehearsing and enjoying Cambridge, then perform in this legendary sacred space in Ely.

Choral Composers: This festival will also be preceded by an optional add-on, a three-day Choral Composers Workshop June 15-17, sponsored by the John Ness Beck Foundation. Dan runs this festival most summers, but this is the first time it has been held internationally. Participants will explore all aspects of choral music, visit nearby historic Cambridge cathedrals/halls, and hear from guest speakers including Paul Mealor, Bob Chilcott, and Sarah Macdonald, then participate in the CREATION festival performance with special behind-the-scenes discussions and “debriefs” with Dan Forrest and Jamie Meaders interspersed with rehearsals and performance. More details at the John Ness Beck Foundation Workshop page, and Vox Anima London.
