Founded 25 years ago in Malahide, the choir is currently under direction of the hugely talented Michael Dawson. Michael presently sings at Christchurch Cathedral under the directorship of Ian Keatley. Also Conductor of Maynooth Chamber Choir, Michael’s choirs have performed numerous acclaimed concerts, most recently a five state tour of the USA which included the Metropolitan Club, New York and the Leighton Concert Hall, Notre Dame University.
