Festival 500 Sharing the Voices

On July 6th, 2011, Festival 500 Sharing the Voices will commence another eight-day celebration of song in the historic city of St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.  With interactive performances, workshops and masterclasses, the unsurpassed scenery, culture and friendliness of our people make our Canadian province a natural home for this internationally renowned non-competitive choral experience.
Festival 500 is thrilled to announce the return of Finnish a cappella ensemble RAJATON ( as our headline guest vocal group.  They will be joined by a stellar roster of distinguished guest clinicians including:

  • Grete Pedersen (Norway)
  • Kari Ala-Pöllänen (Finland)
  • Bob Chilcott (UK)
  • Fred Sjöberg (Sweden)
