The International Choral Festival Wales was born out of a passion for music, a vision to welcome the best of the international choral community to Wales and a desire to push the boundaries of musical excellence.

Our inaugural Festival will be held at the iconic Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff during the Easter weekend. During the day, the best choirs in the world will compete for the prestigious Sir Karl Jenkins Trophy and our world class panel of adjudicators will decide who will be crowned “Choir of Choirs”. Evenings will be dedicated to showcasing internationally acclaimed artists who promise to deliver a musical experience to remember.

The Festival is dedicated to promoting artistic excellence, global understanding, friendship, and goodwill through choral music, and we hope you will join us in 2019 for something truly special.
