24th – 27th October 2013
This is a four-day joyous celebration of choral activities involving national and international choirs, together with choirs from the local community.
Performances will take place in popular venues throughout the city such as the newly refurbished St Columb’s Theatre and the magnificent Guildhall, as well as the Waterside Theatre, UU Magee, Christ Church and local schools, but will also introduce choral performances in more unusual spaces such as shopping centres, hotel foyers and open-air spaces.
The festival will premiere a newly commissioned work by composer Eriks Esenvalds and international choirs will compete for a prestigious International Trophy (bespoke design by a local artist), as well as substantial monetary prizes.
