WHO ARE THE FESTIVAL STATESMEN
Formed in April 2009 by Musical Director and Educator Jonathan Bligh, The Festival Statesmen Chorus is a dynamic all-male A Cappella vocal group. With repertoire ranging from Contemporary to Classical, this chorus exists to provide a platform for Adelaide singers to achieve vocal and performance excellence.
The chorus has headlined a number of choral festivals all across Australia and regularly runs workshops for secondary school students. The lads have won a whole swag of awards over the years in various genres. We've also hosted 3 Sold-Out shows in the Adelaide Fringe. In 2018, the Festival Statesmen took out 1st place in the National Barbershop Convention with the highest score in Australian history from the international panel of judges.
