WHO ARE THE FESTIVAL STATESMEN
Formed in April 2009 by Jonathan Bligh, The Festival Statesmen Chorus is a dynamic male voice a cappella group. With repertoire ranging from Contemporary to Classical, the chorus exists to provide a platform for Adelaide singers to achieve vocal and performance excellence.
The Festival Statesmen have headlined a number of choral festivals all across Australia and run many workshops. They have won a whole swag of awards over the years in various genres including winning the AUS ACA National a cappella competition twice and also won the BHA National Barbershop Competition with the highest score in Australian history awarded by a panel of international judges. The Festival Statesmen have also presented many sold out seasons at the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
