The 14th Glenarm Festival of Voice

The 14th Glenarm Festival of Voice returns to the beautiful Co Antrim village of Glenarm from 23-25 August 2024.

Now in its fourteenth year, the festival includes three free BBC Radio 3 recitals to experience, recorded live at the Festival for national broadcast in September, an afternoon concert in The Londonderry Arms in Carnlough, and culminates in a thrilling vocal competition featuring five young opera singers selected from across the island of Ireland.

Our Competition Finale, hosted by our Patron, BBC Radio 3 broadcaster Sean Rafferty, showcases five singers selected from entrants from across the island of Ireland who compete in front of a live jury panel to win the Deborah Voigt Opera Prize and become the NI Opera Young Opera Voice of 2023. Applications are currently being accepted for opera singers between the ages of 18 and 28 to enter the vocal competition – find out how to apply by clicking here.

Details of our BBC Radio 3 Recitalists for 2024 will be announced soon with full information on how to apply for a free ticket to be in the audience.

Save the date now for a weekend packed full of wonderful concerts and performances – details and booking links coming soon!
