2023 Festival Information

Join us for the 12th International Choral Festival, July 19-22!

This summer, in the Northern Rocky Mountains, hear extraordinary choral music brought to you by the International Choral Festival.

Choirs from around the world are hand selected to participate based on their musical excellence and variety. Our international choir visitors stay with welcoming hosts throughout the Festival, sharing friendship, food, stories, and song. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, our choirs will give Missoula and the surrounding region, a world of music from July 19-22, 2023.
