Hay Festival Choir Project

Hay Festival has commissioned choir leader Fiona Evans to work with eight local primary schools to come together and sing at Hay Festival 2018. Fiona has written a song especially for this Hay Festival project, entitled 'Imagine the World'. The event aims to celebrate the lives of others, with uplifting melodies and songs from around the world.
