City of Derry International Choir FestivalFestival
Since 2013, the City of Derry International Choir Festival has established itself as a major event in the musical life of Northern Ireland and as the only international choir festival of its kind in the UK. Its unique set of events includes participatory events for choirs of all nationalities, ages and abilities, and it’s guest artists, which range from sought-after vocal groups to modern a cappella groups. The festival is also renowned for its community engagement, 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.
This year, the City of Derry International Choir Festival is receiving an online iteration with a rich, virtual programme of performances, events and workshops running from Wednesday 21 October to Sunday 25 October. Audiences will be able to watch most of the free-to-view virtual concerts and events on the City of Derry International Choir Festival’s Facebook page.
The festival, which is presenting an opportunity for choristers and audiences to come together to delight in the power of song, will feature chamber choir Tenebrae, Irish acapella group Ardú, a new composition from Brian Irvine and a 350-strong virtual global chorus singing the popular work ‘Danny Boy’ under the conductorship of Bob Chilcott. Find out more about the programme here or see their website here.
We’re delighted to be working with City of Derry International Choir Festival on PR and Marketing for their 2020 online festival.
