Limerick Choral Union

Limerick Choral Union is an oratorio community choir based in the heart of the city. Its aim is to make choral singing enjoyable and rewarding for the singers and the audience alike. Since its foundation in 1964, LCU has maintained its endeavours to encourage new talents into the choir and to continue to perform the best and most exciting choral works to its audience, under the musical direction of Malcolm Green. 


LCU sees itself as an ambassador for Limerick, promoting its talents locally, nationally and internationally. The choir has toured and performed in France, Bulgaria, Poland, Slovenia, Italy and England. The choir has collaborated with many other choirs and over the years it has entered numerous competitions winning the Best Limerick Choir award in 1997. 


It is a choir for both professionals and non-professionals; everyone is welcome providing they can sing in tune. A normal year consists of two major performances at the University Concert Hall in Limerick, participation in a choral festival, a trip abroad and an end of year mass. Families have grown up with the choir and it has been a tradition for many members to join along with their mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, husbands and wives. It is through this sense of belonging, pride and accomplishment that the choir continues to flourish. 


LCU is a progressive choir, always learning new repertoire, singing in many languages - Irish, French, German, Latin, Italian and Russian and challenging both members and the audience to more complex and demanding choral works. 


If you would like to join the choir and you can ‘hold a note’, we would love to hear from you.

Voices of Limerick

Founded in 1992, Voices of Limerick is a choir of over 70 voices whose aim is to foster an understanding and love of choral music.  This it has done very successfully and its success is due in no small way to its Musical Director, the renowned Colette Davis.

 

Voices of Limerick enjoy singing many of the great choral arrangements and has also performed works that have been arranged specially for the choir itself.  In their 2014 ‘CLASSICS FOR CULTURE ‘ concert the choir premiered an arrangement by Colman Pearce dedicated to ‘Voices of Limerick’  that lovely ballad ‘Where the Shannon River meets the Sea’, in recognition of Limerick’s year as National City of Culture.

Our Choir Director is Colette Davis. The contact number for Dolores Hanly (Secretary) is 087-2969640. She is the contact for new members. The website for our choir is www.voicesoflimerick.com. Our rehearsals take place on Monday night in Mary Immaculate College from 8pm -  10pm. 

Vox Dolce Chamber Choir

 

Vox Dolce Chamber Choir is a Limerick based choir formed in January 2018 by a group of four friends who love music and singing. Our hope was to form a choir for the sheer joy of singing, to take the quality of perforance seriously but to have some fun along the way. Through auditions, we brought together like-minded singers to perform a broad repertoire of popular music from Rihanna to Leonard Cohen. Our choir director is the very talented Michelle Creed who has years of experience in both music performance and teaching. We currently have 26 members both male and female and we rehearse once a week in the Limerick Deaf Community Centre.

 

Location:  96 O’Connell Street,
