The Clermont Chorale from Dundalk, Ireland will join with Boston City Singers for a concert in St Mark’s Church in Dorchester on Friday the 5th April. This will be a special event to raise funds for the Irish International Immigrant Center (IIIC) and both choirs are delighted to support the excellent work that the Center does for immigrants, particularly those from Ireland.
Headquartered in Dorchester, Boston City Singers trains and inspires the artist, student and ambassador in each child and shares these developed talents throughout the year in public and private performances while venturing to places such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, and Washington, DC for goodwill and performance tours. Irish choir, Clermont Chorale, was formed in 2003 and has 35 members; drawn from all parts of County Louth and its neighboring counties. It has performed regularly to public and critical acclaim in theatres and churches in the North East over the past 9 years and has a reputation for delivering a broad range of choral works, in many languages, with sensitivity and style.
Clermont Chorale has a special relationship with Jane Money (Boston City Singers Founder and Artistic and Education Director), and the Boston City Singers. Dundalk-born (and Boston-based) Sean Rogers and Jane set up a children’s choir in Dundalk, modeled on the Boston experience and the legacy of that initiative lives on in County Louth to this day. Clermont Chorale says they are “particularly delighted to work again with Jane and her singers – especially with the joint performance with a special arrangement in Gaelic.”
Ronnie Millar, Deputy Director of the IIIC, says “The Center is deeply grateful for the both the Clermont Chorale and the Boston City Singers’ generosity and we look forward to a wonderful evening of song connecting Ireland and Boston.”
The concert will be held at St. Mark’s Church in Dorchester on Friday, April 5th at 7:30PM.
To purchase tickets, please phone the IIIC at (617) 542-7654. All proceeds will support legal, wellness and education services from immigrants from Ireland and all over the world.
