Since its inception in 1954 the Cork Choral Festival has grown to become one of the most important events in the amateur International Choral calendar with choirs travelling from all over the world to take part in four days of keenly contested competition – and much socialising too!

The Mornington Singers

The festival includes gala concerts, schools concerts, national and international competition, fringe concerts, many outdoor and public performances, a food fair, an extremely lively festival club and many other event.

The premier event is the competition for the prestigious Fleischmann International Trophy, hotly contested each year by some of the finest amateur international choirs. The standard in this competition is very high – even being inviting to participate is seen as an accolade. These choirs also perform in a range of additional festival activities throughout the week including fringe concerts, church and informal performances, so there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy their singing.

The National Competitions involves over 100 Adult, Youth and School choirs from all over Ireland – in all there can be more than 5000 singers in the city for the week, so if you enjoy Choral music this is an event not to miss.

Here’s some music to whet your appetite:
