The 2018 Sligo International Choral Festival will take place from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th November 2018 at the Knocknarea Arena, IT Sligo. The festival programme greatly enhances the development of musical arts in the North-West of Ireland with festival clubs, competitions, non-competitive events together with opportunities to engage with the broad cultural / heritage landscape that Sligo has to offer.
The choral festival is marked by the depth of welcome for choirs and their supporters who participate each year.
Non-competitive events such as Acapella in the City, Sing Alleluia, Sing for the Hell of It! and Sligo BIDS Christmas Lights launch bring the choral experience into the daily lives of the people of the City and County of Sligo. These events which take place in the streets, shopping centres and churches of Sligo City and County empower both choirs and the broader audience to imaginatively engage the musical arts.
