Christ Church Cathedral joins me in inviting you and your singers to join my2018 Dublin Choir Festival concert.
Ireland brings out the whimsy in us all. Whether tracking down that elusive four leaf clover or rumored ancient relatives, Ireland holds us in its palm and charms us with its culture, music, history and love of life.
I will program 30 minutes or so of repertoire that captures the Irish spirit also sharing the music of America and the rest of the world. You will also be invited to perform in your own right in the prelude to the combined festival choir on July 6 in addition to Belfast or Galway concert options.
KIconcerts and I collaborate in a way that brings you the best combination of musical and touring experiences. Above all we will ensure a safe, fun and informative stay in the land of leprechaun! And as the Irish say more eloquently than could we:
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand
Until we meet in Ireland.
