Choirs in Dublin
Facing the haunting outline of the majestic Wicklow Mountains, Ireland’s Fair City holds true to a 1, 000-year Celtic heritage that inspires her music and artistry to this day. The inaugural Féile Córúil Dublin, or Dublin Choral Festival, will celebrate this great heritage of Celtic musical inspiration.
The 2016 festival will take place June 22-26, 2016, and the 2017 festival will take place July 5-9, 2017. Both events will feature mixed-voice choirs and individual singers from a variety of backgrounds joining together to sing en masse. Three days of rehearsals will lead participants to a grand finale performance in the historic, stunning, and oldest medieval cathedral in Ireland, Christ Church Cathedral Dublin.
The 2016 festival chorus will perform thrilling choral literature under the direction of esteemed Artistic Director Dr. Kevin Fenton – Professor of Choral Conducting and Ensembles at Florida State University, while the 2017 festival will be led by Dr. Stan Engebretson – Professor of Music and Director of Choral Studies at George Mason University.
