Our third rehearsal for our upcoming performance of Verdi’s Requiem will take place from 7pm in Regent House this Wednesday, the 2nd of February. This will be the last opportunity for any new members to join for this term! We look forward to seeing you all there.
A huge thanks to everybody that came along to the first rehearsal for Verdi’s Requiem last Wednesday. The second rehearsal will take place from 7pm in Regent House this Wednesday, the 26th. New members are still welcome to come along and join for the term, and no audition is required. New tenors will be especially welcome! Further information will be provided at rehearsal regarding the upcoming Cherry Cup competition for quarters and we are also hoping to have rehearsal CDs ready. We look forward to seeing you there!
The first rehearsal for our upcoming performance of Handel’s Messiah will take place this Wednesday [18th of January!] in Regent House. Please arrive by 6.30 pm to allow time for registration and the distribution of scores before the singing commences. New members of some, or no experience at all are more than welcome to come along and join (no audition is required). We look forward to seeing both familiar members return and also plenty of new faces at rehearsal tonight to begin what should be an exciting term!
We are now just over a week away from the commencement of Hilary Term, which promises to be extremely exciting and eventful! Choral will be joining with the Guinness Choir and the Ulster Orchestra to present a performance of Verdi’s Requiem in the Grand Canal Theatre as part of the Tercentenary celebrations of the School of Medicine in Trinity College. Choral performed the Irish premiere of Verdi’s Requiem in 1876 and we are delighted to be associated with this work once more.
The Berliner Philharmoniker perform the Dies Irae from Verdi’s Requiem
As it is the beginning of a new term, we are looking for new singers of all voices (particularly tenors) to join the choir. We welcome both experienced singers and any beginners who just want to try it out (there is no audition required to join). If you have any questions, do not hesitate to get in touch with us at our contact page. New members can sign up at our first rehearsal for the term in Regent House (above Front Arch) at 6.30 pm on Wednesday 19 January. Don’t worry if you can’t make it to our first rehearsal however, as we rehearse weekly in Regent House from 7pm and you can join up to and including the third rehearsal on Wednesday 2 February.
Besides the performance of Verdi’s Requiem, the upcoming term will also see the 2011 iteration of the Cherry Cup competition for vocal quartets. Stay tuned for further information on this year’s competition. The set piece will be circulated at rehearsals and committee members will be more than happy to help you to put a full quartet together for the competition. Visit our Cherry Cup page for further information on the competition and details of last year’s event
We look forward to seeing you on the 19th of January to begin what should be a memorable term!
Happy New Year everybody! We would once more like to thank everyone for their tremendous work during last term for the two concerts and the Christmas carols in Dundrum. Photographs are now available here from our concert on 25 November. A huge thanks goes to Megan Woods for taking these photographs. We hope that you are all enjoying the break from college and getting some well earned rest! We are now just over three weeks away from our first rehearsal for Hilary Term. The programme for the upcoming term is tremendously exciting – a performance of Verdi’s Requiem in the Grand Canal Theatre on 2 April 2011. We look forward to seeing you at our rehearsal on 19 January in Regent House.
