A choral festival run by people who actually sing in a choir – the perfect formula to guarantee a fantastic festival!

Dedicated to promoting friendship and inclusivity, International Choral Festival Cardiff was born out of a passion for choral music, a vision to bring the international choral community to Wales and a desire to celebrate music together.

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

Since its inception, we’ve been proud to welcome choirs from across the world.
