About the Festival

Facing the haunting outline of the majestic Wicklow Mountains, Ireland’s Fair City holds true to a 1,000-year Celtic heritage that inspires her music and artistry to this day. The Dublin Choral Festival will celebrate this great heritage of Celtic musical inspiration.

The festival will take place June 14-18, 2023 and will feature mixed-voice choirs and individual singers from a variety of backgrounds joining together to sing en masse. Three days of rehearsals will lead participants to a grand finale performance in the historic, stunning, and iconic St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Founded in 1191, St. Patrick’s Cathedral is also known as the National Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St. Patrick and is the largest church in Ireland.

The 2023 festival chorus will be under the artistic direction of Ryan Beeken, Director of Choral Activities at Wichita State University.

The 2024 festival chorus will be under the artistic direction of Jake Runestad, award-winning composer and conductor.

Concert and tour production for the event is provided by Music Celebrations International.
