City of Derry International Choir Festival

About

First held in 2013, the City of Derry International Choir Festival is now established as a major event in the musical life of Northern Ireland and as the only international choir festival of its kind in the UK.

Conceived as a joyous celebration of all that choral singing has to offer, its activities include concerts by world-renowned vocal groups, competitions for choirs, workshops and educational events for singers and conductors, and community concerts and choral trails in landmark locations across Derry and the surrounding area.

The festival welcomes more than 60 choirs each year and recent festivals have welcomed groups from Belarus, Colombia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Norway, Poland, Scotland, Slovenia, Sweden and Wales. Choirs range from local and school groups to vocal ensembles, adult, community and gospel choirs. Internationally acclaimed professional groups featuring in our guest concerts have included The Sixteen, The King’s Singers, Tenebrae, The Real Group, VOCES8, SLIXS, the Swingle Singers and the Marian Consort. The inclusion of such outstanding artists is a benchmark of the event’s high artistic quality.

Keep an eye on our website for further updates and exciting announcements over the coming months. We look forward to seeing you in Derry soon!
