The Guinness choir has been established for more than 65 years and is one of the most prestigious choirs in Ireland. It boasts an extensive repertoire of both classical and modern works from Moneverdi’s 1610 Vespers to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Requiem. The choir have also sung works by Haydn, Bach, Handel, Beethoven, Britten, Rutter, Tavener and Part to name but a few.
As well as our major annual concert, we like to hold a Christmas Concert comprising well known carols with some less known, but beautiful, pieces. In recent years we have invited a Special Guest to join us. In December 2016, Paul Brady was our Special Guest and in 2017 we were joined by Eleanor McEvoy.
In addition to our Dublin based concerts, we have a tradition of performing around Ireland including Belfast, Longford, Birr, Waterford and Wexford.
If you enjoy singing as part of a sociable group, with professional orchestras and soloists, and performing the great choral works and if you are committed to attend our rehearsals, then you will definitely enjoy and benefit from becoming a Member of The Guinness Choir.
Members of the choir are friendly and approachable. There are regular opportunities to socialise with other members as well as organised workshops and away trips.
