St Paul’s choir to sing in gala concert at St Patrick’s Cathedral on April 28th

The choir have been invited to sing in a gala concert in St Patrick’s Cathedral on Thursday April 28th at 7.30pm, with Nathan Barrett conducting and Matthew Breen accompanying on the organ.  The theme of the evening is the cathedral’s musical legacy (dating back to 1547!) and the choirs, soloists, organists, accompanists and many composers for the night have a link to the cathedral.  All proceeds of tickets (€20 adults, €10 children) will go towards supporting a new building for the cathedral school.
Tickets available after church during coffee this Sunday, April 24th, from Roger West or from  The delightful musical programme will suit all tastes – please support this worthy effort if you can.
