The deadline for singing choirs and groups to register as a competitor in the Fingal International Festival of Voices is fast approaching on FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 2020.
The Festival which is being held from March 12-15 is offering prizes of €2,000 for a wide range of singing groups including Children’s Choirs at Prmary and Post-Priority level, Folk Music Groups, Choirs of Sacred Music, and Barbership Quartets and Choruses. A Grand Prix of €3,000 and a stunning trophy by an Irish Artist is being offered as an overall prize in an adult catergory. The Award will be made before a packed audience in Balbriggan’s St Peter and Paul Church, home to the wonderful Harry Clarke stained glass windows.
Further details on the competitions, prizes, and how to register can be found at
Central to the festival’s mission of inclusivity is the non-competitive performance category which will welcome the delightful “Forget-me-Nots” choir, among others. Registration for non-competitive groups should also be completed by January 31.
Already, choirs from Dublin, Belarus, Canada and the U.S have registered. Registration is now open at www.fingalfestivalofvoices.com.
According to Artistic Director, Michael T. Dawson, “The festival is focused on celebrating diversity and will provide a platform for individuals and communities from home and abroad to showcase their culture in locations across Fingal. Workshops and classes on singing, conducting and story-telling will be available to anyone attending the festival and will be led by our national and international guests.”
