Here is a selection of comments submitted by our satisfied customers....

"The Killaloe Ballina Gospel Choir were looking for a festival location which would be friendly, sunny, good value for money and most of all have fantastic music! We contacted Choir Contact Ireland and asked them to source a non-competitive choral music festival in Europe. We discussed our requirements and were amazed by the value for money we received. With the help of Debbie we were able to have a four day half board trip to Barcelona for €400 including flight! As a result of the fantastic value for money it ended up that the majority of the choir attended the festival. Everyone was extremely impressed with the hotel rooms and food, the festival venues and events and the wonderful people we met. We must also note how beautiful the town of Calella was and how accessible all events were. We would have no hesitation in recommending Choir Contact Ireland due to the fact they take care of every detail and nothing is too much. We are already working together to organise our next trip in 2015"

Hi Olive

This email is long overdue. On behalf of the LECHÉILE Choir I wish to thank you for your invaluable assistance and patience in helping to organise a memorable trip to Vienna and our inaugural European trip, as a choir.

Thanks to the wonderful organisation of Choir Contact each action-packed day ran smoothly. Our first performance was in Rathaus where we sang to an appreciative audience and we continued then to a wonderful concert in the Orangerie in Schonnbrun. The following day W we sang at Mass in the church of St Anna and consequently had the honour of being invited to sing the following morning at Mass in Stephanston Cathedral. To sing Mozart's Ave Verum in such a setting and in Vienna was magic.

Entertaining the Christmas shoppers at the markets outside Schonnbrun as they sipped their mulled wine was a lovely experience. We shopped till we dropped afterwards!

The final choral gathering in Rathaus was very special as I had the honour of conducting the combined gathering of all choirs that participated that weekend in Advent sing in Vienna.

Thank you for making our trip such a success and so memorable. The staff in Hotel Reither were so welcoming and accommodating. Renewed thanks from the entire choir Olive. We hope to travel annually, so we will be in touch again as soon as we see the brochure and begin planning.

Kind Regards

Gerardine LECHÉILE

Dear Olive

Thank you so much for all your help with our Trip to Verona. We had a wonderful time thanks to your organisational skills. You're a perfectionist and professional down to your fingertips. It will be a hard trip to top for us after winning gold, but we never say never!! Many thanks again

Hi Olive,

Thank you for helping me to organise a great trip (to Verona). Everyone really enjoyed it, the accommodation was very good and the staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful. Being awarded silver in the competition was, of course, an added bonus.

Our courier for the trip was Miruska Dressel-Bujnicky and she was absolutely fantastic. She did everything she could to make the visit enjoyable for everyone; was very flexible regarding arrangements and yet ensured that we were always in the right place at the right time. When Miruska realised that many people were already very familiar with Verona, she arranged to substitute the walking tour with a trip to Lake Garda. Miruska was also very supportive of us during the competition, during the closing ceremony and for our visit to the Italian choir. I'd really appreciate if you could pass on these comments to Choir International, she really is a treasure.

The host choir put on a great night for us and if the bus hadn't been waiting for us at the end of the night, I don't think most of our choir would have got home until Monday. Thank you again for all the hard work you put into making the trip a success and I will certainly be recommending to the choir that we use you again when we plan our next trip abroad.

Kind regards

Úna, Cantairi Avondale
