FinTrU continues City of Derry International Choir Festival sponsorship

Monday 16 October 2023

Since 2019, FinTrU has been proud to sponsor the annual City of Derry International Choir Festival.

Celebrating 10 years in 2023, the City of Derry International Choir Festival has continued to grow and is now established as a major event in the musical life of Northern Ireland.

FinTrU Executive Director and North West Site Lead, Greg McCann, said "It is fantastic to see the City of Derry International Choir Festival celebrating its 10th year in the most spectacular fashion - with performers from across the world being welcomed to Derry/Londonderry."

"FinTrU is proud to partner with the festival once again. We are greatly looking forward to seeing the diverse range of choirs from across the globe, as well as the famous school, national and international competitions." 

Fiona Crosbie, Festival Manager, said "The City of Derry International Choir Festival continues to thrive and grow ten years on from its inaugural edition as part of the City of Culture celebrations back in 2013. This 10th anniversary year marks a very significant milestone in our journey."

"We are very proud of all that we have achieved in such a short space of time, none of which would be possible without the generous sponsorship and continued support of FinTrU over the last five years - who have championed our festival and all that it does for the city."

Conceived as a joyous celebration of all that choral singing has to offer, the festival's activities include concerts by world-renowned vocal groups, competitions for choirs, workshops and educational events for singers and conductors. The community concerts and choral trails take place at landmark locations across Derry/Londonderry and the surrounding area.
