Isle of Man Festival of Choirs

From its inception in 2010, the Isle of Man Festival of Choirs has quickly established itself as a major competitive yet friendly musical event.

Overview

The next Isle of Man Festival of Choirs will be held in October 2015.

This event attracts choirs from all around the UK and Ireland – and indeed wherever choral singing is enjoyed and celebrated!

The unique Festival has three separate sections of ladies’, male and mixed voice choirs, with the first two in each section receiving prizes of £500 and £200 respectively. Each choir will be called on to perform four contrasting pieces of their own choice, one of which must be unaccompanied. Winners of each class go through to the final, with the overall winning choir scooping an additional prize of £1,500.

Although competition remains at the heart of the festival, family, friends and visitors are more than welcome to come along and support the choirs.

Tickets to see the choirs are available from www.villagaiety.com or call the box office on +44(0)1624 600 555 nearer to the event.

Location

The Isle of Man Festival of Choirs is hosted at the Villa Marina in Douglas.
