The 9th Mayo International Choral Festival will take place across Castlebar's region in fantastic locations and venues from Wednesday 20th to Sunday 24th May 2020.

The event has become the most popular Choral Festivals in Ireland. There will be international and national choirs, competing and non-competing choirs divided in 15 competition categories. New, this year, are two categories: work-place choirs and third-level/university/college choirs.

The theme of the festival is to allow choirs to meet with other choirs, share musical experiences and enjoy a great weekend in the beautiful and inspiring Mayo.

All choirs will performe in venues with special acoustics including Ballintubber Abbey which dates back to the 12th century.

Highlights for visitors include tours of Mayo, local choirs, local performances, the Song-way Choral Trail and the Saturday evening Gala Concert.

Competitions are open to the public on Saturday in the GMIT Mayo Campus which dates back to 1866.

The winning choirs will perform at the Gala Choral Concert. All long Saturday mini-performances of choirs will also take place throughout the town of Castlebar.

On Sunday morning at 10 am the Choirs will also sing at Mass in various locations in Mayo.
