‘Home’ – Celebrating 10 Years of the Discovery Gospel Choir
Christ Church Cathedral will play host to the Discovery Gospel Choir on Saturday, 15th March, for their concert, ‘Home’, to celebrate the much-loved choir’s tenth anniversary.
Formed in 2004, Discovery Gospel Choir has a strong ethos of reconciliation, development and integration and is made up of 30 singers and musicians from 16 countries spanning four continents. The choir is known for its infectious energy and colourful costumes, and has gained a reputation as Ireland’s leading intercultural choir over the past decade. Their anniversary concert will serve as a reminder of their multicultural roots, with the repertoire including pieces from as far afield as South Africa, Mauritius, Romania and Haiti, as well as a number of more traditional Irish pieces by well-known Irish composers Seán Ó Riada and Seán Davey. Discovery Gospel Choir will be joined on the night by special guests, Congolese guitarist Niwel Tsumbu and Norwegian ensemble Drøbak Gospel.
The concert will take place at 8pm on Saturday, 15th March (doors 7.30pm). Tickets can be purchased through entertainment.ie for €12 (concession of €10 for OAP’s, students and the unwaged).
