To broaden the Festival’s long-term commitment to the composition and understanding of new choral music a Choral Symposium was initiated in 2016 to more fully reflect, and enhance, the development of choral music and its composition and practice in Ireland. The Symposium now offers a wider vision, and a more interactive platform, for composers, conductors, singers, practitioners, and students to meet, experience, and discuss. To place no restrictions of access and cost to participants, the symposium is offered over three days and is free of charge to attendees. The Festival thanks CIT Cork School of Music for its collaborative support in making the facilities of the school available to us.
Details on 2019 Choral Symposium to be announced soon!
