Experience the very best in vocal music this May Bank Holiday with a jam-packed programme of gala concerts, national and International competitions, fringe concerts, free pop-up performances and plenty of surprises. 12 international choirs from all corners of the globe including Russia, Austria, Sweden and the USA will gather in Cork this May to celebrate a year of connections and to share their love of music.

As one of Europe's premier choral festivals, Cork is noted for its world-class gala performances and its high competitive standard. Each year some of the finest amateur international choirs are selected to compete for the prestigious Fleischmann International Trophy.

This coming spring, the Cork International Choral Festival will continue to bring the tradition, culture and vibrancy of choral music to the people of Cork and the many visitors who travel to share this wonderful event with us each year.
