Dublin International Choral Festival
We are excited that members of our Chancel Choir will be participating in the Dublin International Choral Festival next March! They will be singing in a massed choir which will present several movements of Handel's Messiah as well as a new piece commissioned for the occasion.
The trip will be from March 20-25, 2019, and members of the congregation are welcome to join us for a memorable experience! The trip will include guided tours of Dublin, including visits to sites related to Handel's first performance of the Messiah, a full-day bus trip out into County Wicklow to visit charming seaside villages, the Glendalough monastic site, and the famous Powerscourt Gardens. The concert itself will take place in beautiful St. Patrick's Cathedral, the largest and tallest church in Ireland, and there is plenty of time built into the schedule for shopping and pub-crawling!
The tentative per-person cost (final price will be based on the number of participants) is $1481 for the hotel, meals, excursions, etc., and approximately $700 for the airfare. All breakfasts and several dinners are included in the price. The program is run by Music Contact International, the organization which ran our previous choir tours to Leipzig, Germany, and Salzburg, Austria. They provide professional staff and guides to take care of hotel arrangements, airport transfers, plane reservations, etc. They also have an installment payment plan available.
So -if you are interested in joining us for this wonderful tour, or for further information, please speak to Barbara Thomson. We will have a wonderful time, and the more the merrier!
