International Participation

We look forward to welcoming choirs from across the world for an exciting programme of Gala Concerts, National and international competitions and internationally renowned performances as thousands of participants bring the city to life for five days of wonderful choral music. For visiting choirs, Cork provides an opportunity not only to perform; but also to experience some of the world’s best choral music, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the mingling, singing and fun of the Festival Club, and explore the vibrant city of Cork and its surrounds on Ireland’s beautiful south coast.
