Chris Lammiman, of Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts said: "This is a real accolade for us to secure the support of Bob Chilcott. He has spent time as the Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC's acclaimed professional choir, the BBC Singers, and he has conducted other distinguished choirs including RIAS Kammerchor, Vancouver Chamber Choir, Jauna Musika, The World Youth Choir, Tower New Zealand Youth Choir, Taipei Chamber Singers, Wroclaw Philharmonic Choir, and the Kyoto Echo Choir.
"This Choral Day is one not-to-be-missed!" added Chris.
Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts is one of the largest community festivals in the country, with 3,500 performers in music, dance and speech and drama taking part each year.
The syllabus for the 2013 Festival will be launched next month at Pittville School on November 8.
