One of Ireland’s premier choral groups, the Choir of Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin (pictured above), will be in Boston a concert hosted by Encore Tours on Wed., July 17, at 7:30 p.m. at the Old South Church at 645 Boylston Street.
The Christ Church choir has a long and reputable history with its origins in the founding of the cathedral’s choir school in 1493. The 18-member group boasts the largest repertoire of any choir in the country, and is regularly commissioned to perform original works written specifically for its singers. The groups’ Boston performance is part of its 2019 US tour that will also see it perform in New York and Washington D.C.
This event marks the choir’s first ever visit and performance in Boston. Ian Keatley, organist and director of music for the choir, expressed his excitement on behalf of the group.
“We are so looking forward to performing in Boston,” he said in a press release. “It is a city that is very dear to our hearts and Old South is such a special place. Encore Tours have been great partners and we look forward to a truly memorable evening for both singers and audience in this great city.”
The concert is free and open to the public, but as space is limited, audience members are encouraged to reserve tickets online ahead of time at bit.ly/ChristChurchConcert or at eventbrite.com. Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis. Doors will open at 7 p.m.
