The first of the DCC’s own concerts of the ’09-’10 season took place on 14 November 2009 in the splendid acoustic of the Church of St Thérèse, Mount Merrion. This was the choir’s second performance at this venue. A capacity audience enjoyed the choir’s typically eclectic programme, the first half of the concert ranging from the Habañera in Bizet’s Carmen to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody (in an arrangement created specially for us by our conductor Colin Block). The second half was made up of the Sleep Well chorus from Bach’s St John Passion, followed by the main offering, the Mozart Vespers. The evening’s music was enhanced by the fine voices of soloists Kay Lynch (soprano), Clíona McDonough (alto), Niall Chorell (tenor) and Jeffrey Ledwidge (bass).
