Continuum Youth Choir is a newly formed mixed youth choir which comprises girls who are or were members of St Mary’s Pro-Cathedral Girls’ choir and boys who are or were members of the Palestrina Choir in the Pro-Cathedral in Dublin.
This new choir is not church based and is a competition and concert choir directed by Blanaid Murphy. Blanaid is a very well known and respected choral director and she is aiming for the very highest excellence in choral music. Participating in a choir is all about teamwork and Blanaid is keen to develop the choir as a team and develop each of the teenagers so that they reach their maximum singing potential. Consequently the Continuum Youth Choir has been set up to retain these very accomplished teenagers as a group.
Continuum have already performed in St Anne’s Church, Dublin in December 2018 and City Hall Dublin in March 2019.

Cór Fingal was set up by former members of Enchriadis Chamber Choir and Fingal Choral programme in order to continue and develop the tradition of choral music initiated by Dr Marion Doherty in 1988. Now, the choir is conducted by Eoin Conway and has since won various awards at different Choral Festivals.
In 2018, the singers brought home no less than two gold awards from the Mayo Choral Festival. The choir regularly organises social events and puts a big emphasis on being part of a vibrant community of adult singers who want to challenge themselves musically.
In 2020, Cór Fingal is preparing for a Scandinavian concert tour.
Our major concerts each season are performed with professional soloists and orchestra players. The choir takes pride in performing great masterpieces of the choral repertoire, and in presenting the Irish premieres of new works by leading contemporary composers. Our present musical director, David Leigh, follows a long line of distinguished conductors.

We perform a broad range of repertoire, both sacred and secular, ranging from standard works to Tudor editions prepared by choir members and premieres of contemporary compositions written for the choir.
The choir, which has over 70 members, was formed to create a community of people who love to sing and enjoy the many health benefits associated with choral singing. There are no auditions.
Rehearsals are held in Dalkey on Wednesday afternoons, under the direction of Derek Verso, whose emphasis is on enjoyment and the love of singing. Members also get together informally for line practice.
The choir gives an annual summer concert in Dalkey and a Christmas concert to support a local charity. We also sing in a local care home, Dalkey library, a local church and have participated in Limerick Sings festival on two occasions.
