St Anne’s Cathedral will be hosting a free concert on Wednesday July 5 at 7.30pm, featuring the Cantabile Choirs of Kingston, Canada, and Glórthaí Uladh, a choir made up of singers from Belfast, Derry and Gaoth Dobhair.
Since 1996 the Cantabile Choirs of Kingston, under the leadership of Dr Mark Sirett, have thrilled local and regional audiences in performances of a diverse range of choral music from Canada and around the world.
The choirs are famous in Kingston and beyond for joyful concerts full of non-traditional staging, diverse repertoire and singing which demonstrates great skill and enthusiasm. Over the years, Cantabile has grown to include six choirs and over 250 voices, singing music which engages and entertains at every event. From the beginning, Cantabile has provided musical education for choristers and audiences through this high standard of performance and quality choral literature.
St Anne’s is delighted to welcome this prestigious choir as part of their 2017 Irish Tour.
Glórthaí Uladh is directed by renowned singer Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhríde. Their programme of songs features a selection of songs from the Ulster sean-nós tradition.
