Jubilate Choir Dublin

Jubilate Choir Dublin

Location:
Rathgar, Co. Dublin
Conductor:
Amy Ryan

Jubilate Choir sings classical repertoire, giving two performances each year in various venues in Dublin.

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.

Amy Ryan, the current musical director currently lectures in Music at Trinity College, Dublin and at the Royal Irish Academy of Music. She is in demand as a choral conductor and workshop facilitator, directing the Jubilate Choir, UCD Philharmonic Choir, award-winning chamber choir, Cuore, and the Irish-language ladies choir, Cór Duibhlinne. Amy has also worked with the Irish Youth Choir, the Irish Youth Chamber Choir, Lyric Opera Chorus, UCD Symphony Orchestra and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra.

The Rosemount Singers

The Rosemount Singers

Location:
Julianstown, Co. Meath
Conductor:
Shane Barriscale

The Rosemount Singers are a small community chamber choir based in Julianstown, Co. Meath.

They first came into being in 2017 during the ‘Julianstown Community Music Festival’ when festival organiser Dorothy Alioth [director of the education and management company ‘KenDu music’] wanted to give ambitious local singers the chance to learn and perform music in 4-part harmony. Under the musical direction of Shane Barriscale, singers of all backgrounds and abilities performed two Mozart classics as part of the festival line-up.
Such was the enthusiasm from the singers at the time, that many of them wanted to continue singing together beyond the festival. Thus, the Rosemount Singers were formed (named after the house and estate in Rosemount, Julianstown where the choir rehearses every Tuesday morning).
Since 2017, they have performed in a number of concerts and events in Meath and Louth. They perform a variety of music ranging from early music by Tallis and Purcell, plainchant, all the way up to jazz classics by Gershwin, and christmas carols. We continue to give our ambitious singers the challenge of singing in 4-part, and sometimes 5-part harmony, but sight-reading is not a requirement. All our singers need is a good set of ears, a love of singing and an eagerness to dive right into the music-making. All are welcome!
