The Guinness Choir Sing Again!

In their first live performance in over two and a half years, The Guinness Choir will perform their “Sing Again” Concert in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin at 7.30p.m. on Saturday 14 May 2022.
Conducted by David Milne with guests Catherine Redding, Soprano; Niall O’Sullivan, Trumpet and David Leigh, Organ the concert is the flagship event of the wonderful Culture Date with Dublin 8 Festival which runs that same weekend.  The programme of popular choral pieces has lots to offer the audience on the evening.
The selection has been chosen from their extensive repertoire over 70 years, it includes beautiful works such as Mozart’s ‘Ave Verum Corpus’, Bruckner’s ‘Locus Iste’, Rheinberger’s ‘Abendlied’, and Fauré’s ‘Cantique de Jean Racine’, along with works by Bach, Handel, Haydn, Gjeilo and Whitacre.
In addition to these many wonderful choral pieces, they tell us that three special guest artists Niall O’Sullivan on trumpet, Catherine Redding, soprano and David Leigh on the organ will fill the cathedral acoustic perfectly.
The Choir is also delighted and proud to give the first performance of ‘The Weaver’ by Judith Ring.  This setting of a poem by Diane Tierney was specially commissioned by The Guinness Choir with the support of the Arts Council as part of their 70th Anniversary celebrations.
Sing Again takes place at St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin at 7.30p.m. on Saturday 14 May 2022. Tickets available via Eventbrite.

The concert is supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports and Media, and Dublin City Council.
