Many thanks to all of our members for their hard work in preparing for the Verdi Requiem concert on April 2nd, which was a tremendous success. The combined forces of Choral and the Guinness Choir soared with the colourful double fugue of the “Sanctus” while the precise playing of the Ulster Orchestra ensured that the sound of the menacing “Dies Irae” and “Tuba mirum” reverberated around the Grand Canal Theatre. A huge thanks also goes to the wonderful audience for their attendance and appreciation. The concert recieved an extremely positive review in the Irish Independent, which can be located here: http://www.independent.ie/entertainment/going-out/review-verdis-requiem-2611318.html . The conclusion of this concert sadly brings an end to the 2010-2011 academic year for Choral. We wish our student members all the best in the upcoming exams and look forward to seeing you all for the beginning of the new academic year in September.
