From online to live audience

Stiles Events created this online choral festival with the intention of having a live audience at next year’s festival Voices by The Sea 2022. This project has been made possible under the Government’s Live Performance Support Scheme, Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
Each performance showcased three songs from separate locations, all situated along the coast of Ireland. The inclusion of a lyrical reference to the sea / water / sailing from each choral group, tied in nicely with the theme of singing by the sea.
All groups where delighted to have had the opportunity to perform together again indoors, which has not been possible before now. Some even remarked on the occasion as being the most interesting thing they have done in 18 months.
