Limerick Choral Festival 2019

Friday 1st - Sunday 3rd March
  • Limerick Choral Festival

The Limerick Choral Festival aims to promote the development of choral music with special emphasis on the realm of church/sacred music in the city and wider region.

We look forward to welcoming choirs from near and far to Limerick over the first weekend of March 2019.

As well as choral competitions the annual Limerick Choral Festival will be committed to welcoming non-competing choirs to participate. Other festival activities will include the involvement of both composers and organists 'in residence', a major choral liturgy over the weekend, and a nightly festival club to provide an appropriate opportunity for a get-together between local and visiting choirs.
