Limerick Sings invites you to the 5th International Choral Festival from the 22nd to the 26th June 2017.


Limerick Sings International Choral Festival is designed to offer choirs of all traditions and nationalities an opportunity to come together for a weekend of festive, non–competitive singing.


Don’t miss the chance to join the “Big Sing” at the Cliffs of Moher, a truly unique singing experience. The “Big Sing” element of the festival offers choristers the opportunity to sing with other choral groups in one of the most majestic settings in Ireland and a natural wonder of the world.


Choirs have the opportunity to sing their own repertoire in some of Ireland’s finest music venues and to join a performance with choristers from other countries.


The festival programme includes:

Limerick City, Ireland’s oldest chartered city has a strong tradition of choral, opera and musical theatre dating back to the 19th century.  Limerick City extends a warm welcome to choristers from around the world to explore our bustling modern city, steeped with a rich medieval past, which resounds around its ancient streets.


The social programme of the festival allows choirs to meet and mingle with each other and to also explore the city and surrounding region. There will also be a chance to socialise with the local Limerick host choirs.
