Dublin County Choir, Ireland
Conducted by: Colin Block
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. They like, every so often, to rock and swing as well as put on a serious face!
They are based in Dundrum, Co. Dublin, but with a membership drawn from all over the city and beyond. The singers  enjoy their  music, but also want to reach as high a quality of performance as the team of professionals, conductors Colin Block and John Dexter, and repetiteur Celine Kelly can draw from them.  The spur for this is the public concerts presented each year, typically in spring and autumn as well as at Christmas. Dublin’s National Concert Hall is their usual performance home, but they 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.
