This big choir (130+ members) is perhaps unique amongst Dublin choirs in having developed, since its first public outing in 1977, a hugely varied repertoire, ranging from the great classical masterworks such as the Verdi Requiem and Carmina Burana to fun material such as the Beatles, Carpenters, Beach Boys & Queen and just about every other choral musical genre. We like, every so often, to rock and swing as well as put on a serious face!
We’re based in Dundrum, Co. Dublin, but with a membership drawn from all over the city and beyond. We enjoy our music, but we also want to reach as high a quality of performance as our team of professionals, conductors Colin Block and John Dexter, and repetiteur Celine Kelly can draw from us. The spur for this is the public concerts we present each year, typically in spring and autumn as well as at Christmas. Dublin’s National Concert Hall is our usual performance home, but we have played many other venues at home and abroad, including, in the past few years, Carnegie Hall, New York, and the Palais Montcalm in Québec City.
We rehearse in Ballinteer every Monday evening from 7.30 to 10pm, September to May, and prospective new members are always welcome.
