As part of its 2018 Ireland concert tour, the University of Southern Indiana Chamber Choir received first place in the Mayo International Choral Festival Premiere Competition in Ballina, Ballintubber and Castlebar, Co. Mayo, Ireland.
The choir, under the direction of Daniel Craig, associate professor of music, competed in the festival’s Sacred Music and Four-Part Choirs competition.
