As you know, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has been devastating for those of us involved in the choral industry. The MTU Glór Choral Society saw the opportunity for Irish third-level student choirs to adapt to new ways of singing together, and began to plan the inaugural All-Ireland Choral Intervarsities.

 

Over the past number of months, seven choirs from various third-level institutes across Ireland have been holding online rehearsals with a view to creating a "virtual choir" video. Each of these will be assessed by a panel of adjudicators, with prizes available in a number of categories.

 

The weekend will culminate in the Intervarsities Competition on the Sunday evening. This will feature the seven virtual choir videos, an awards ceremony, and guest performances from Anúna, Dublin Gospel Choir and Dulciana Vocal Ensemble. This event will also be free for public viewing via YouTube premiere.
