With up to 200 events the festival caters for music fanatics, families who wish to enjoy a safe, child focused festival, and those who come just to soak up the scenery, the friendliness and the free outdoor music.'

'We aim to present all of our concerts in a relaxed format, whilst still maintaining the highest artistic standards. If you attend a Newry Chamber Music concert you are guaranteed a great evening's entertainment. Our artists will introduce themselves and more importantly will talk about the music they are going to play, giving you some background about the composer, when the work was written, its historical context and what to listen out for. We like to feel connected to our audience so that we can all experience the joy of music making together.'

 

One of the largest of its kind worldwide. There are approximately 14,000 entries each year; three sessions per day, and the equivalent of 39 days of performance across seven Sections. Classes are scheduled for Newry Town Hall and the adjoining Sean Hollywood Arts Centre. The Feis also enjoys excellent support from local groups and organisations when special facilities are needed for Organ classes and Music Making for Special Needs.' Held February - May.

 

‘A community choir based in Downpatrick Co Down Northern Ireland. We sing for our own enjoyment and perform to raise funds for charity ... The Choir was formed in May 2007 and developed out of The Singers' Circle night class at Down Arts Centre ... The ethos of the choir is inclusive - there is no audition to join but choir members are required to make a specified level of commitment in terms of attendance at classes, practices and performances. The underlying principles under which we operate are informed by the Natural Voice Network (NVN). Our motto is the popular Zimbabwean proverb “If you can walk you can dance, if you can talk you can sing!”.’

‘Music is a large part of the life of the Cathedral. The building houses one of the finest organs in Ireland and, to compliment this, choral music has always played a very important part in leading the worship ... The Cathedral hosts major festivals and services for the Diocese, the highlight being the annual St Patrick’s Day celebrations on 17th March.‘
