A.I.M.S. Choral Festival


Enjoy the annual Association of Irish Musical Societies choral festival in New Ross.

Friday 19th May Junior Day

Competitions for school and youth choirs take place in St Michael’s Theatre.

Solo competitions take place in both St Michael’s Theatre and the nearby Pastoral center.

Saturday 20th May

Like many previous years we will be hosting a special Festival Gala Night on Saturday 20th May, which will feature much of the award winning talent from the south east region of A.I.M.S.

Sunday 21st May Adult Day

The hugely popular senior day at the festival sees familiar faces return year on year to take part in one or more of the 12 choral categories and we welcome all returning and new choirs to New Ross. Please note; this year competition I, Musical Cameo, has been opened to all choirs who would wish to take part and is no longer confined to A.I.M.S. members. Competition C remains restricted to members of A.I.M.S.

We extend a warm invitation to any individual, choir or musical society to participate in one or multiple competitions across the weekend. You can be assured that you will find a competition to meet your needs!

There is always a great atmosphere and camaraderie during the festival with people sitting out on the streets in many areas of the town chatting and singing.
