The 2018 Leith Hill Musical Festival.....
. . . was Jonathan Willcocks' second as conductor. The festival started with a performance of Handel's Messiah, on Sunday March 18th at the Dorking Halls. The Festival competition spanned 12th-14th April, with Oxshott's division singing on Saturday 14th. The choirs have been reorganized for this year, and instead of Divisions 1, 2 and 3, there are Red, Green and Blue Divisions. This is to avoid any implication of a hierarchy, and to stop any choirs thinking that they are in a superior division to other choirs, although obviously Red is the dominant colour out of the three.
Green division (Bookham, Dorking, Holmbury St. Mary and Mickleham) sang on Thursday 12th, main work Elgar's The Kingdom. Blue division (Buckland & Betchworth, Beare Green & Newdigate, Horsley and Leatherhead) sang on Friday, main work Will Todd's Mass in Blue. On Saturday Red division (Capel, Epsom, Oxshott and Shalford) sang Vaughan Williams' Five Mystical Songs and Rutter's Mass of the Children. Jonathan declared afterwards that it was the best Festival he had ever conducted.
