Many thanks to all choirs and choral directors who have expressed an interest in participating in this year’s City of Derry International Choir Festival in October 2020. We really appreciate your continued support. Obviously events have overtaken us all as the Covid-19 virus continues its global transmission.
It is our intention to present a festival in October, but everything is currently under review until such time as the situation improves and we have greater clarity on how best to proceed. As a result, we are removing the previously advertised closing dates for entries. We will keep you informed of new schedules and arrangements as soon as possible. In the meantime, we would encourage you to continue to contact the festival with expressions of interest or intention to participate, as this will help us greatly in our planning and ensure that the festival is a reflection of your needs and aspirations.
We all love singing and we recognise the great healing and energising power of singing together. We remain hopeful that our 2020 festival will be a true celebration of voices united in song in this City of Song.
In the meantime, stay safe, look after yourselves and your loved ones, and keep singing from the balconies!
