About us

Founded in 1837, the University of Dublin Choral Society (UDCS) is the oldest and largest choir in Trinity College. We are a four part mixed voice choir, consisting of undergraduates, postgraduates and staff. Choral specialises in performing large-scale choral works with full orchestral accompaniment both within and outside the walls of Trinity College under the direction of our professional Musical Director, David Leigh. We enthusiastically encourage people of all voices and ages to join the society.

Get involved in singing!

Singing in choir is a tremendously enjoyable activity that reduces stress and gives you a great opportunity to develop new friends across college. Choral gives you the chance to perform exciting and dramatic choral works, such as Handel Messiah, Mozart Requiem, and Bach Mass in B Minor.
