Cantairí Óga Átha Cliath is an international award-winning female voice choir based in Rathmines, Dublin. The choir sings a varied repertory spanning Renaissance polyphony to Contemporary music and arrangements, and taking particular joy in the performance of Irish-composed music.
In November 2019 the choir competed in the 3rd International Choral Festival of Aveiro, Portugal, where they were awarded the festival Grand Prix, first prize in the Female Voice Competition and second prize in the Sacred Music Competition. In April of the same year they were the winners of the Feis Ceoil Ladies Choir competition.
Cantairí Óga Átha Cliath was founded in 1960 by Proinsias O'Ceallaigh. The choir enjoyed huge success over the years under the baton of the late Brian O'Dubhghaill and later Bernie Sherlock, winning awards in many competitions in Ireland and abroad. Brian Dungan has conducted the choir since 2018 and under his guidance, the choir is continuing its long and successful tradition of choral music.
Cantando is a mixed voiced chamber choir. A highly accomplished and versatile group, as well as good friends, Cantando sing in a variety of styles and genres, expertly guided by their talented director Orla Barry.
They have performed in numerous concert locations around Ireland. They have taken part in International and National competitions at home and abroad. They were the first Irish Choir to achieve a gold award at the Verona International Choral Festival, were finalists in the Moore Stephens International Festival in Jersey, National Choir of the Cork Choral Festival and winners in numerous categories at Cork, Sligo, Arklow, Navan, New Ross and Dundalk. Cantando have made many recordings including several broadcasts for RTE and a double CD of Contemporary Church Music I sing for Joy. As well as challenging each other to reach the highest musical standards, a sense of fun and enjoyment is important to all members.
We sing unaccompanied, short pieces. Our repertoire spans the centuries and styles, from Renaissance to modern. We have a particular interest in folk music from around the world. We aim to give 2-3 concerts and enter 1 national choral festival each year. We sing off by heart in most concerts and all competitions, so being a member takes commitment and some learning outside of rehearsals. Although sight-reading is not essential, familiarity with written music is helpful.
September & January are the best times to join, but we welcome interest from potential new members throughout the year. Our Soprano and Alto sections can fill up, but we often have room for new Tenors and Basses. There is a short audition. Members pay fees each term to cover the choir’s costs. There is a reduced rate for anyone who needs it. For more information about joining, please contact Cantóirí by e-mail or through Twitter @cantoirichoir
