Next year’s festival takes place from April 28th to May 2nd 2010 and we are keen to yet again attract overseas choirs to join us to take part in this celebration of choral music.
Fleischmann International Trophy Competition
Each year some of the finest amateur choirs are selected to compete for the prestigious Fleischmann International Trophy. The selected choirs also have an opportunity to perform in a range of additional festival activities throughout the week including fringe concerts, church and informal performances. Please click here to find more information as well as the application form for the Fleischmann International Trophy Competition of the 2010 Cork International Choral Festival. We would be grateful if you could further circulate this information to interested choirs. Should you require any hard-copies, or any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Each year a number of very fine choirs are also selected to participate in the non-competitive strand of the festival. Participating non-competitively gives choirs the opportunity to present informal performances in various locations across the city, while having the possibility to meet with other choirs, see some of Ireland’s beautiful countryside, attend some of the festival events, sing, mingle, and soak up the festival atmosphere here in Cork. Non-competitive choirs are free to organize their own tourist activities while here, but are asked to please keep the festival office informed as their itinerary comes together to ensure that no time-tabling cross over occurs. To find more information and the application form for non-competitive participation, please click here.
