Freshers week 2019

Welcome back to a brand new year with DU Choral Society!  Come find us at our Freshers Fair stand to renew your membership or join up for the first time – we’re armed and ready with free donut vouchers and guaranteed addition to the mailing list (we PROMISE).  Alternatively, feel free to sign-up at our first rehearsal of the year:

1ST REHEARSAL

WEDNESDAY 11TH SEPTEMBER

COLLEGE CHAPEL

6.30 – 9.00PM

Returning members will know the long process of signing-up and payment of score deposits at first rehearsal, so where it is humanly possible the committee would hugely appreciate timely arrival at 6.30pm.  Refundable score deposits are €10!!!  Please be aware that without a valid score deposit, we cannot provide you with a score for the semester/year.

Following the rehearsal we will be heading out on the town for our traditional platters and pints (the food is on us)!

Every Wednesday night from the 18th Sept onwards will see us gathering in Regent House for rehearsals from 7.00 – 9.00pm as per usual.

 

See you soon!

New term approaches – new members welcome!

We’re now finally in 2018, which means that Choral will be returning to action very soon! Our main concert this term will be two performances of Rossini’s Petite Messe Solenelle during the week of the 19th of March.

New members are more than welcome to join the choir for the upcoming term. Our rehearsals take place on Wednesdays in Regent House (above front arch) from 7-9pm. However, there will be a change of venue for the first rehearsal on Wednesday 17th January. This rehearsal will be in room 3074 in the Arts Building (3rd floor) from 7-9pm. We accept singers of all levels of experience. If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch here.

Freshers’ Week 2017 and the term ahead

Choral is tremendously excited to kick off it’s 180th year this coming September. We have some really exciting plans for the year ahead, and are looking for new members from across the college community: students, graduates and staff.

Choral is the largest and oldest choir in Trinity College, and is steeped in tradition. To this day, members have the rare privilege of wearing academic gowns during our performances, which typically take place in Trinity’s famous Public Theatre (also known as the Examination Hall).

We stage two main concert series each year, towards the end of each of the main teaching terms. On Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd November this year, we will perform Mozart’s dramatic and powerful Requiem (alongside some other works by Mozart and Haydn). In March we will be presenting Rossini’s Petite Messe Solonelle.

Aside from these events, we have a host of other smaller activities during the year, ranging from social events like table quizzes, to our famous Cherry Cup competition for vocal quartets. We are also planning an exciting additional concert for December, with further details to be announced shortly.

If you’re interested in getting involved, please pop down to our stand in Front Square during Freshers’ Week, where you can sign up. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings in Goldsmith Hall from 7-9pm, with our first rehearsal being on Wednesday 27th September. You can also come directly to this rehearsal, or any of the following two in order to sign up.

We’re really excited about our events for this year, and would be delighted if you were part of them!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
