Choir Contact Ireland (CCI) is Ireland's only dedicated choral travel provider. Our goal is to bring choirs from different countries together to share their love of music, to hear one another perform, and to sing together for international audiences. We are an independent, Irish-owned company and we have been creating unforgettable music experiences for Irish choirs for over 20 years.
We are a fun and happy group of singers. We play ukeleles and harmonise to popular songs. We meet once a week and enjoy the benefits of this holistic approach to music.

Founded in January 2015 by Eoghan Desmond and Judith Lyons, Dulciana is a chamber choir committed to performing the very best in music for upper voices from across the ages. Since its very inception, part of Dulciana’s mission has been the promotion of music by female composers, both those neglected by history, and those currently making history. This first manifested itself in the form of a concert consisting entirely of music by female composers – five pieces written for Dulciana by composers based in Dublin, alongside music by Rebecca Clarke and Imogen Holst. The following year, on International Women’s Day, they launched a call for scores for music by emerging female composers and received over 80 scores from across the globe. Highlighting the many
talented musicians within the group, their most recent concert featured a programme
consisting entirely of works composed or arranged by members of the ensemble.
They are also firm supporters of contemporary Irish composers, and alongside many pieces
by female Irish composers they have premiered works by Seán
Doherty, Jonathan Nangle and Eoghan Desmond. Further recent performances and accolades include collaborations with multi-instrumentalist and composer Dowry, percussionist Maeve
O'Hara, guest performances at Kaleidoscope Night and the Pipeworks Festival and First Prize in the Upper Equal Voice Category at the Derry International
Choral Festival 2019.
