Competition Details


Choirs taking part in the competition also have the opportunity to sing for the general public at spaces around the city - such as the outdoor Markets or the Manchester Museum.

The MACC usually begins mid-morning and the day is split into segments, divided by a lunch period, with the individual choral performances in both halves. The judge's decision and trophy presentation takes place at the end of each event, late afternoon, preceded by a performance from the previous competition's winning choir.

The venue for the MACC is the Royal Northern College of Music, both for its long and distinguished association with the promotion of music, its acoustically-designed auditoriums and it’s accessibility in terms of disability and transport links from the city centre.
