Séidiú is a four-part vocal ensemble that was founded in Clifden in November 2015. Currently the ensemble consists of three sopranos, two altos and a bass. Their repertory includes music from the Italian Renaissance as well as newer Scandinavian music. Choir director is Nina Johanna Madsen, originally from Denmark, and now living locally. They will start this musical evening off and will be followed by The Cois Cladaigh Chamber Choir who performed at the festival in 2016 to great acclaim. Cois Cladaigh is a mixed voice choir based in Galway and was founded in 1982. The choir specialises in European music from the late 15th and early 16th centuries and also performs a formidable repertoire of contemporary choral music. The choir has had considerable success in competition, winning the premier national award on three occasions at Ireland’s most important meeting, the Cork Choral Festival.
