ZêzereArts Festival

A reminder that the early bird deadline (31/01) for the ZêzereArts Festival is approaching. The Festival will take place from July 15th to 22nd in Tomar, Portugal.

Directed by Brian MacKay (formerly the principal conductor of Chamber Choir Ireland), the 2017 ZezereArts Festival promises to offer singers of all levels a unique opportunity to perform exciting repertoire in world heritage buildings in central Portugal. With three strands, singers can choose from singing Haydn’s Creation with the symphonic chorus, performing Mozart’s Mass in F major and exploring repertoire by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff with the festival choir, or joining the chamber choir for yet more challenging repertoire, including workshopping and performing works with the 2017 Festival Composer, Eurico Carrapatoso.
