Conductor Study Tour
19 Oct 2019 – 25 Oct 2019, Derry, Ireland
The study tour, taking place in partnership with the Derry International Choir Festival, will immerse the conductors in the choral music of Ireland, a country with a strong choral and folk song tradition, that in recent years has seen a rejuvenation with many interesting choral composers writing for choir. The study tour will give participants an experience of Ireland and of Irish Choral music, and the possibility to be in Derry for the beginning of the festival taking place from 23-27/10/2019
Based in the historic and beautiful city of Derry in the north of Ireland, the study tour will also incorporate travel opportunities for conductors to visit sights such as Derry‘s Walls, Giant‘s Causeway, Bushmills Distillery, Titanic Quarter, Seamus Heaney HomePlace and the Wild Atlantic Way.
