Festival trail spreads music into the community
Posted on 18 October 2017
As part of the City of Derry International Choir Festival our city will be filled with song between Wednesday 25th– Sunday 29th October. In addition to the competitive schedule and official concerts, participating choirs will step off the stage and onto a community choral trail, appearing in numerous pop-up locations in the city.
You can catch informal performances from the visiting choirs in venues such as Foyleside, The Craft Village, Sainsbury’s, The City Hotel, the Railway Station, Altnagelvin Hospital and many more. Several churches will also play host to visiting choirs during their Sunday morning services on 29th October as part of the festival’s Sacred Trail.
This year’s exciting festival line-up sees representation from Portugal, Poland, Estonia, Denmark, Norway, England and Ireland. The Choral Trail adds another dimension to the formal events taking place in St. Columb’s Hall as singers spill out into the streets and bring their music to the public.
All Choral Trail performances are free of charge.
Tickets for all evening concerts are currently on sale from the Millennium Forum Box Office.
