Thank you ...
The Guinness Choir would like to thank Diageo for its continued and generous support over the last 60 years.
To be announced ...
The next concert will be announced soon.
The choir, formed in Dublin in 1951, has developed an extensive repertoire of classical and modern works, and John Dexter, who succeeded Victor Leeson as musical director in 1984, continued this tradition. David Milne has been musical director since 1991.
Many distinguished Irish and international soloists have sung with the choir over the years. The Guinness Choir is also committed to supporting emerging Irish talent and in recent years many young singers have appeared with the choir.
The repertoire of the choir spans the centuries from early music to the present day - from Monteverdi's 1610 Vespers through to Andrew Lloyd Webber's Requiem, John Rutter's Psalmfest, Gerard Victory's Ultima Rerum and Rhoda Coghill's Out of the Cradle.
Calling all singers!
