Spokane choristers performing at international music festival in Ireland


The grand finale in Limerick. Posted on Monday, June 29, 2015


Two Inland Northwest choirs are wrapping up a weeklong tour of Ireland, which included performances at the international choral festival known as Limerick Sings.

The Eastern Washington University Symphonic Choir and one of the choral groups from Spokane Area Youth Choirs, which serves elementary, middle and high schoolers, performed separately and as a combined group at the festival. Both are directed by Kristina Ploeger, an EWU music professor.

Limerick, located along the River Shannon in midwestern Ireland, is one of Spokane's sister cities.
