Join Ireland's leading intercultural choir on Friday 6th May for a night of music, song, dance and poetry celebrating Our Ireland.
Follow Discovery Gospel Choir on an enchanting musical journey as they explore the vibrant landscape of contemporary Ireland in this exciting multicultural musical experience, led by musical director Carmel Whelan.
Through a unique fusion of musical styles, Our Ireland will weave a musical tapestry which explores not only the rich musical heritage of Ireland, but of the countries represented by the choir’s diverse and expansive membership, including Uganda, Croatia, India, Hungary, Nigeria, Japan and Ukraine.
This musical exploration will invite the audience to reflect on Irish identity, and what it means to them. This question will be further examined through the inclusion of new, original poetry, reflecting each performer’s unique vision of “Our Ireland”.
Supported by St. Patrick's Festival x TikTok Creative Fund, Our Ireland will take place at 8pm on Friday 6th May, in Our Lady of Lourdes Church on Sean McDermott Street, Dublin 1 in the heart of Dublin’s north east inner city.
The concert will also see the debut performance of Discovery’s brand new pop-up community choir which will perform alongside Discovery Gospel Choir on the night, following a series of community based workshops led by Discovery artists Justine Nantale and Mika Onodera.
