Choral Activation - Phase 1 (Wicklow Sings Festival / 'Sing in Wicklow' Website))

In 2018, with the support of Creative Ireland, Wicklow County Arts Office explored the mechanisms needed to support the development of choral music in the county. Following a comprehensive consultation process with Strategic Consultant and specialist Katherine Zeserson, and the involvement of 18 choirs of varying age groups and genres, the Choral Activation Strategy was published in 2019.

Key priorities of the Strategy include the creation of a countywide choral network, support local events and festivals, and the advancement of choral music practitioners and singers.  

To support the delivery of these key priorities, Wicklow County Arts Office commissioned the ‘Sing in Wicklow’ website and supported the delivery of 'Wicklow Sings Festival' as part of Phase 1.

The ‘Sing in Wicklow’ website aims to provide a base for all Wicklow choirs, not only to help the choirs promote their work, events and achievements but also to recruit new members and support a countywide choral network.

Wicklow Sings is a community arts festival for choirs based in County Wicklow. Established in 2016, it is an annual event held in Spring every year.

The Festival is a one day event, with an average of fifteen choirs performing at an evening concert hosted by Temple Carrig Secondary School, Greystones. Wicklow Sings provides a platform for Wicklow-based choirs to gather, perform, celebrate and showcase their choirs, music, work and people.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
