Suso Choral Festival - 
Dare to Sing is back again!

We have always loved this festival and this will be our 4th time running it. It is always a fantastic weekend full of love, shaing, creativity, talent, laughter and joy! Joining us this year we have a fantastic line up. We had to bring back Craig Lees and Declan Davies – this dynamic duo from Leeds are such a big part of our festival and it wouldnt be the same without them! Joining them is the incredible Audrey Mattis. Audrey is a musician whose dominating gift is her ability to bring the absolute best out of any singer she shares her talents with. Her work covers being a choir director, event producer, jazz-gospel performer and she is known throughout the UK especially for her work with gospel choir productions and as a director of massed choirs. We have brought Ruaidhrí O Dálaigh on board this year, Ruaidhrí is a highly accomplished director and runs 5 choirs! He will be specialising in close harmony. Dancer, actor and singer Jade O Connor is joining us to teach choreography for the weekend, while Eimear Crehan will be teaching creativity coaching and working with solo singers.
