‘Christmas Joy’

The Guinness Choir performed our ‘Christmas Joy’ concert at on Sunday 11th December 2022 in St. Andrew’s Church, Westland Row, Dublin 2.

The concert included a selection of works from some of the outstanding living composers from across Europe, UK and USA, balanced by pieces from the renaissance and baroque eras.

With additional contributions from our wonderful guest accompanists Anthony Byrne, Piano and Sokol Koka, Cello, together with soloist Jade Phoenix, Soprano, and a helping of ‘old favourites’ from the seasonal repertoire, this was a Christmas feast of choral sound!

We were delighted to see so many people brave the very cold weather to attend and we were doubly delighted at the warmth of the audience reaction to the programme.
