Dedicated to promoting artistic excellence, friendship and goodwill, International Choral Festival Wales was born out of a passion for choral music, a vision to bring together the best of the international choral community to Wales and a desire to push the boundaries of musical excellence.

The inaugural Festival was held in Wales’ thriving capital city, Cardiff and saw choirs from South Africa, Ukraine, the host nation, Wales and its neighbouring country, England compete for the prestigious Sir Karl Jenkins Trophy and the Choir of Choirs title.

International Choral Festival Wales returns to Cardiff in Easter 2019 with a full programme of choral delights. We hope you will be able to join us between 19-21 April 2019 for something truly special.
