About The Event
Chanteuse are very proud to be taking part in the Isle of Man Choral Festival over the weekend of 13th to 15th October 2023.
The competition will be held in the Villa Marina situated on Douglas Promenade. The centrepiece is the Royal Hall, a state-of-the-art and spectacular auditorium that combines Edwardian grandeur and comfort with the latest sound and light system to create an amazing atmosphere. This venue is indeed a pride of the community and a phenomenal place to sing and perform.
The weekend will begin on the Friday evening with the popular ‘Welcome Evening’ where choristers can meet, eat, drink, sing and get to know each other before the competition begins.
The festival will include an Ensemble Competition which will take place as a stand-alone competition prior to Sunday’s final. Each ensemble will be required to sing two contrasting pieces of no more than 10 minutes maximum.
The main competition, which takes place on the Saturday afternoon will include classes for Male Voice, Ladies Voice, Mixed Voice and an Open Class.
Winners of each class go through to the final on Sunday afternoon, with the overall winning choir scooping an additional prize of £1,500 and the ‘Choir of the Festival’ trophy.
