Mayo Choral Festival Gala Concert 2013.
The Gala Concert for this year’s festival promises to be a spectacular evening’s entertainment with all winning choirs, all international choirs and some guest acts performing on the night. The evening is being presented by Tommy Marren of Mid-West Radio and the conductor for the evening is the renowned RTE conductor, David Brophy. David, one of our adjudicators for the choir competitions, will conduct the massed choirs as they perform “The Anvil Chorus” from Il Trovatore by Verdi and “Battle Hymn of the Republic” by Julia Ward Howe.
The winner of the Premier Competition will be announced on the night. The prize fund for this competition is 1000 euro. Each of the winning choirs will receive a bespoke, handmade trophy, each showing images of Mayo. It promises to be an incredible night, one not to be missed. Tickets are 12 euro and are available from the Royal Theatre or from their website or on the door on the night.
