We sing a wide variety of songs from all around the world, and perform for charities and in Nursing homes. This has proven to be a very enjoyable experience for everybody. We have a great St. Patrick’s Day repertoire, and we even took centre stage in the St. Stephen’s Green shopping centre, singing Christmas carols for charity.
