and a Songful
We have had a wonderful year of singing and music -
from the spectacular Concert For Peace in Knock Basilica and our
festival in May, including the amazing Gala night,
to the many visiting choirs throughout the year
including choirs from Missouri and Wales.
And what and a super 2017 festival launch we had on Lough Corrib -
here's to repeating all the fun again - and more - in 2017
Also a reminder that the choir entry closing date
to the festival for all choirs is fast approaching -
Visit Mayo in May (24th - 28th May 2017) to experience
the warmth and hospitality of the Mayo people,
and to perform together with local choirs.
All events open to a public audience.
