Hillary Term Concert 18th & 19th March

Phew! That semester flew by!

Our Magnificat concert is swiftly approaching, and we would be delighted if you could join us in the Exam Hall (TCD Campus) on Wednesday 18th March and/or Thursday 19th March. There’s nothing like some choral music after the chaos of St. Patrick’s weekend: bring your friends, family, classmates, coworkers, first dates and life-long partners for a wonderful evening of quality chorus. We’ve had a blast practising for this one – Rutter is about as jazzy as one can find in the choral repertoire, and Bach is his usual zesty self; we’ve certainly been kept on our toes.

In the intervening weeks we have also hosted our annual acapella competition, the Cherry Cup! Adjudicated by Dr. Marion Doherty, two spirited quartets battled it out over ‘April is in my Mistress’ Face’, with experienced choristers and long-term members Ross, Aoife, Gayle and David pipping their competitors to the post – commiserations to our runner-ups Chris, Caroline, Darien and Rachel! We do extend warm congratulations to every competing singer however, it was a lovely end to our usual Wednesday rehearsals and we enjoyed each performance heartily.

Also of note: our AGM will take place on Wednesday the 11th March ahead of our usual rehearsals, which will in turn be followed by some slap-up platters courtesy of the Choral Society bank account. Come along for the free food and stay for the wildly entertaining Treasurer’s Report, am I right?

Until next time,

Isobel Hon. Treasurer UDCS
