Narberth’s A Cappella Voice Festival (NAVF) returns with an uplifting biennial celebration of voice over the weekend of 15/16 Feb 2020 in The Queens Hall, Narberth.

The NAVF Festival is a wonderful opportunity for people to come together to share in a joyful weekend of singing. This year, we have a Saturday evening concert with a rich line up of performances, singing workshops to bookend the festival and a very special addition of a Singing Feast, a Celebration of Community and Song and a very extraordinary record-breaking attempt.

NAVF Saturday Concert, 15 Feb, brings captivating performances from Semi Toned, Exeter’s award-winning all-male choir (Barbershop harmony), Ye Vagabonds (Irish folk) and Durga Ramakrishnan (Indian).

The workshop programme, 15/16 Feb features Irish/folk, Indian, Corsican, Georgian, Welsh and Looping alongside Molara’s Sing for Wellbeing clinic.

Singing Feast, 15 Feb, is a fantastic opportunity to feed the soul as well as the stomach.  Performers and participants will sing for their supper from a menu of songs and food from around the globe.  Manchester charity, Heart and Parcel, will also share their inspirational community building story bringing migrant women together through dumplings.

Celebration of Community and Song and Intergenerational Choir Record-Breaking Attempt, 16 Feb Narberth’s A Cappella Voice Festival will close with a heartfelt performance of an inspirational and international repertoire from Span Arts’ Côr Pawb and Caring Choirs. This will be followed by an extraordinary record-breaking attempt to bring people aged from 0 – 99 together to sing in unison and raise funds for local youth and dementia charities.  Whatever your age or experience of singing you are invited to come along and join this one-off multi-generational choir, sing along in unison to rousing and uplifting songs to finish the Festival off in style.
