Kilkenny’s International Gospel Choir Festival is seeking gospel choirs and music lovers from Tipperary to get involved in the first-ever International Gospel Choir Festival which takes place from August 30th to September 2nd in Kilkenny.

Award-winning Irish singer-songwriter Don Mescall and his long-term co-writing collaborator Chris Pelcer composed the official anthem for Ireland and Europe’s first International Gospel Choir Festival and the acclaimed Irish artist will return home to Kilkenny and perform at the festival with the choirs over the festival weekend.

Festival Founder and Kilkenny Gospel Choir Director Fr Willie Purcell is calling for all local gospel choirs to sign up for the event and sing with hundreds of others during the weekend of music and song.

The festival’s much-anticipated grand finale at the iconic Kilkenny Castle will see over 1,000 voices come together to perform the anthem entitled Faith and Friendship.
