The Grace Notes are among groups of singers including the the Kentwood Choir and Swindon Community Choir at the festival, which will run from 1pm on Sunday, 12 June.
Billy and Louie founded the choir in 2019 with the aim of uniting passionate singers seeking a fun and relaxing outlet. 
Sadly, due to the pandemic, the duo were unable to run the Grace Notes sessions in person, but they were able to run virtual sessions through video calls and live streams. 
Last year the Grace Notes returned with lots of new members and began working towards their first big project - the Community Choral Festival. 
Since starting the group in 2019, the twin choir leaders have been creating new arrangements of classic songs featuring complex, tight harmonies and their soulful flair. 
The Grace Notes are excited to present a set list of songs everyone knows and also sing with Billy & Louie on their last number! 
With years of experience touring the UK, singing on BBC 1 for Little Mix and writing and producing music, Billy and Louie wanted to share their knowledge and passion for singing. 
In a recent radio interview, Billy said: "we just love to create music. Whether that’s writing songs, covers, arrangements, accompaniments. We love it all and just want to share that with others. 
"We’ve got huge plans for this year and next year for us and our students. We might even write a song for the Grace Notes."
