Festival celebrating choral music at its best through performances and competitions while showcasing Kenmare, a designated Heritage Town.

Welcome to the third Kenmare Choral Festival which is under the patronage of Dr. Geoffrey Spratt, Director of the Cork School of Music. This festival aspires to celebrate choral music at its best through performances and competitions while showcasing Kenmare, a designated Heritage Town.

Competitions include light entertainment, church music, chamber choir and large choir competitions. In addition to the competitions, choirs and visitors alike are invited to come to Kenmare to begin their Christmas shopping and to partake in the festive concerts and events planned for the weekend. Events include an opening Gala Concert on Friday evening, impromptu choral singing on the streets and in restaurants, pubs and hotels, other concerts and fun competitions. The festival will end on Sunday with the very popular Festival Christmas Concert of massed choirs and the audience singing beautiful Christmas and seasonal music in Holy Cross Church.

Come along and experience first-hand the wonderful sounds of choral music while enjoying the start of the Christmas season in Kenmare.
