We would like to invite you and your choir to take part in the Limerick Sings International Choral Festival which will take place in Limerick, Ireland from 4th to 7th June 2020
We can promise a really enjoyable week-end. It is an annual non-competitive Choral Festival set in the beautiful backdrop of the University of Limerick Campus in Ireland and in some of Limerick City and the Region's wonderful venues. These venues provide exceptional choral performances to local audiences and visitors.
Many visiting choirs take the opportunity to stay pre or post the Festival to explore all that the Region has to offer including the Wild Atlantic Way, Bunratty Castle, the Cliffs of Moher as well as further afield to Galway, Killarney and Dublin. The festival also provides the opportunity for Choirs to meet each other across a series of formal and informal concerts, a choral trail and during many social events throughout the weekend.
Limerick Sings 2020 will offer choirs a number of performance opportunities throughout the festival including a "Big Sing" choral performance. We will be adding workshops that you can opt to participate in too. This year we had Bob Chilcott and last year Eric Whitacre directed the workshop. We are still working on 2020 but for a small added cost of approx. €25pp you can get the opportunity to work with a leading Choral Composer or Conductor.
Below you will also find a draft itinerary for your attention. Accommodation Packages start at €310 per person and include 4 nights B&B. It also includes the opportunity for choirs to participate in one main concert, our Outdoor Chorus, and one of our Choral Trails in a location around the city. For the concerts you are not directly performing in, an audience ticket will be arranged for you to sit in and enjoy the performance. Also included is entrance into our Opening night BBQ and farewell reception.
Alternatively, we are naturally happy to develop a specific package to meet your requirements, just let us know.
I’ve attached our Music and Arts Brochure to give you a sense of the high standard accommodation choirs enjoy. Participants share 4-6 bedded apartments and each room in that apartment is ensuite so your members have their own bedroom and bathroom etc but share a living space. They also get to enjoy the wonderful environs of the campus and mix with other choirs attending the Festival, and see the many lovely sites in the West of Ireland.
If you have any other questions or need more details on anything please let me know. Here’s a taste of 2018 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-y-r5f3i24&feature=youtu.be
We have a special offer running until September 2019. Choirs of 30 or more that book in and pay a deposit get a free space for their Music Director or Group Organiser.
We hope we will have the pleasure of hearing your choir here in Limerick in 2020. If you would like any further information you can contact us at the below telephone number or by email at email@example.com
