The award-winning Danu Young Women’s Choir have announced details of a Spring concert at a very special venue with some exciting guests.

The historic Guildhall in Derry will provide the atmospheric setting for the show on 19th May.

The Letterkenny-based choir have certainly not rested on their laurels since their huge success at The Barbershop Harmony Society’s Midwinter Festival in New York in January, where they were the highest-scoring chorus in their competition.

Their director Douglas Carnes began rehearsals immediately on their return home, and they are so excited to be performing live at the historic Guildhall in Derry on May 19th.

Danu Young Women’s Choir will also be joined by ‘little sister’ choirs Danín (aged 10-13) and Faíthín (aged 9 and under) – this is the first time that all three ensembles will be performing together.

The concert, titled ‘Diaspora’, is influenced by the Celtic diaspora’s emigration all over the world and will explore the music and language of our ancestors.

Come for classic favourites like Amazing Grace, Parting Glass, Báidín Fheilimí, and Star of the County Down. Hear some Ireland premieres like Nathaniel Adam’s arrangement of Black is the Colour and Elaine Hagenberg’s, O Love. Whether you love Irish Trad, Classical, Choral, or Vocal Jazz this concert has what you need to fill your soul – history, culture, music, and love!
