Jubilate Choir sings classical repertoire, giving two performances each year in various venues in Dublin.More +
We have between 40 and 50 members from all over Dublin in the choir. We rehearse on a Sunday evening at 7.30 to 9.30 in the Parish Hall at the rear of the Church of the Three Patrons, Rathgar. We are always interested in welcoming new members to join us. Some choral experience and an ability to sight read is an advantage, but not necessary.
Jubilate Choir was founded in 2010 by the then 16-year-old Killian Farrell, who formed the choir to perform Bach’s St. John Passion for the celebration of the jubilee of the parish of St. Pius X, Templeogue. He led the choir for its first 5 years, during which time the choir performed Bach Passions and the Mass in B minor, Brahms requiem as well as Haydn, and Mendelssohn oratorios.
