Each year some of the finest amateur choirs are selected to compete in the prestigious Fleischmann International Trophy Competition. The selected choirs will also be scheduled for a range of additional Festival activities throughout the week including fringe concerts, church and informal performances.
The Festival has always featured choirs from around the world on a non-competitive basis. Selected Non-Competitive choirs are given the opportunity to present informal performances in various locations across Cork city and county, to meet with other choirs, attend Festival events, sing, mingle and soak up the festival atmosphere. Whether your choir would like to give two performances per day, or set aside spare time to see some of Ireland’s beautiful countryside, performances are flexible and will be tailored.
