Date: Saturday 26th May
One of the key festival highlights, this concert will feature many of the visiting International choirs as well as choirs from Ireland, all performing in the one venue. The night will feature the winners of the various competitions held earlier that day during the festival, and afterwards the audience will be treated to ‘Le Ceili' - a coming together of some of the very best musicians and dancers from Mayo, as a showcase to our visitors. (‘Le Ceili' is a play on the Irish for Ceile, the traditional Irish dance, and ‘Le Cheile' meaning ‘together')
The festival (May 24th - May 27th 2012) takes the form of several international male/female choirs travelling to Mayo to partake on a competing and non-competing basis. Their visit will also include a number of evening and daily performances in various venues around Mayo on Friday and Sunday. The theme of the festival is to allow choirs to meet with other choirs, tour, relax and enjoy a great weekend in the beautiful West of Ireland.
The festival has the support of the Mayo Lions Clubs and local Mayo choral groups to coordinate concerts by the visiting choirs in each of the towns in Mayo, and to act as hosts for the visiting choirs. For more information, visit www.mayochoral.com
