Exeter Festival Chorus believes music is for everyone, so as part of their 25th Anniversary celebrations they are offering their concert tickets to everyone under the age of 18 for only £1 and to students for £5. Adult tickets cost between £7 and £35, depending on seating in venues such as Exeter Cathedral, so that’s a bargain.
Everyone knows choral singing lifts the spirit and the soothing power of music is well-established so why not take advantage of this brilliant offer and have a musical family evening out? In the digital age, the beneficial effects of listening to classical music to absorb our attention and reduce stress mean more than ever. So, bring the kids, take the teens and come and celebrate with them in their anniversary year
