Stage Systems are very proud to announce that we are sponsoring the Eighth Cornwall International Male Choral Festival which is being held from 27th April to 1st May 2017 in and around Truro.

The Cornwall International Male Choral Festival is the World’s Largest Male Choral Festival, with over 60 Adult and Youth Male Choirs from all over the world coming together for 5 days of concerts, events, camaraderie, and competitions! 

Festival Director, Robert T. Elliot invited Stage Systems to sponsor this year’s festival and to supply the tiered platform. Rob has used our staging in the past and asked us to design a solution on which the choirs could sing in the beautiful Hall for Cornwall in Truro.  Our Q-plus tiering was an ideal solution for the hall, as it is a safe and strong portable system comprising timber decks and metal frames.

There are events taking place all over Cornwall in venues such as The Eden Project; The National Maritime Museum; The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Truro Cathedral as well as smaller venues such as All Saints Church, Falmouth; Camborne Cententary Methodist; Helston Methodist Church; St Elwyn’s Church, Hayle; St Andrews Church, Redruth and St Johns Methodist, St Austell.

Stage Systems will be visting locations around Truro over the course of the festival, as well as exhibiting on Sunday 30th April in the Hall for Cornwall between 9:30am and 1pm.  Come along and visit us for some expert, friendly advice on our range of staging and tiering solutions.  We have some excellent brochures, case studies and freebies to give away!

The event is set to be an amazing celebration of male choir singing for this, the Eighth Cornwall International Male Choral Festival. The Founding Director back in 2003 – Dr. Roy Wales and former Festival Director Peter Davies, developed this unique Festival into a world – class event.

“I am indebted to our President for his considerable support and to our very generous sponsors, donors and patrons without whom the Festival simply could not exist.

A key difference from many other festivals is the role local choirs play. Not only do they sing in concerts but they host them, organise social time afterwards, provide volunteers to staff events and get actively involved in Festival promotion. Without their considerable involvement, the Festival would be a shadow of what it is.  We are fortunate to attract the support of an excellent group of compères too. Widely experienced, they bring a professionalism and local knowledge to “chair” concerts, ensuring their smooth running and glossing over any issues with consummate ease.  “

Festival Director, Robert T. Elliot
