Choral Festival 2009
(13/10/2008) by Leo Kilroy

The festival next year will celebrate 25 years in New Ross

The AIMS Choral Festival invites your society to join us in 2009 to celebrate 25 years in New Ross from May 24th – 26th .

The Choral Festival is one of the main annual events in the AIMS calendar and as such we would urge AIMS members to take part.

The Sunday competitions encompass 12 categories of choral singing across a wide range of genres but there are two competitions confined to AIMS societies.

Competition C is for a mixed choir where choirs sing any chorus from a musical and a contrasting own choice piece while Competition I , Musical Cameo is one piece from a show costumed and produced with a minimum of 4 voices. These competitions prove hugely popular with audiences and are a showcase of AIMS talent.

If you are a frequent visitor to the festival we will be delighted to welcome you back. If you have never taken part in our festival you might consider joining us especially if your show is over by May and you’d like to meet other societies .

Our full syllabus and entry form will be sent out and available on this website in January. Meanwhile I would ask you to display our flyer which is currently being sent to all societies …and hopefully put a date in your diary to visit New Ross next May!
