ChoirFest Middle East

After two silent years due to Covid-19, ChoirFestME returns in February 2023 for its 10th anniversary. This year it is bigger and better than ever as we join forces with the Ministry of Education for the Youth Competition and expand the festival into all seven Emirates, opening up to choirs from public schools across the country.

Our annual Choir of the Year competition honours the talent, drive and creativity of choirs across Junior, Middle, Senior and Adult categories. The lucky winners walk away with trophies for Best Regional Choir, Choir of the Year Runner Up and the ultimate Choir of the Year award.

This year, the winners of the UAE Youth Choir of the Year will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Gangneung, South Korea to compete in the World Choir Games 2023.
