Cathedral Choral Foundation Concert
The choirboys of St. Patrick’s Cathedral Choir School will give a special performance to launch their outreach programme – which is aimed at sustaining the Choir School, the only one of its kind in Ireland - at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, St. Patrick’s Close, Dublin 8 on Friday, 13th June at 6.15pm. The choristers – aged eight to 12 – will perform the ‘Chichester Psalms’ by Leonard Bernstein and five African-American Spirituals from ‘A Child of Our Time’ by Michael Tippett. The concert coincides with the graduation of the current exceptionally talented crop of choristers. The choir will be directed by Master of Choristers Stuart Nicholson, and will be joined by organist Tristan Russcher; harpist, Geraldine O’Doherty; and Richard O’Donnell on percussion. Admission is free of charge and there will be a collection on the evening.
