High Hopes Choir and SSE Airs to stage charity Christmas concert
The High Hopes Choir and the award-winning SSE Airs will stage a magical Christmas concert on Friday 16 December at 7:30pm in the beautiful setting of St Andrew’s Church, Westland Row, Dublin 2.
The concert is being held to raise funds St Vincent de Paul, Focus Ireland, and Penny Dinners in Cork, who all do vital charity work in the run up to Christmas.
Ireland’s world renowned orchestra conductor David Brophy will accompany the two choirs on the evening.
Brophy set up the High Hopes Choir two years ago. It is made up of people who are dealing with homelessness in Ireland, with the aim of giving these people a voice and changing the public perception of what it means to be homeless.
The project was the subject of an acclaimed RTE documentary and the choir has since gone from strength to strength, working with the likes of Christy Moore, Kodaline and Lisa Hannigan and appearing at festivals across the country, including Electric Picnic and the Sligo International Choral Festival.
The SSE Airs are made up of employees of SSE Airtricity and have been performing for a little over two years.
In that time they have won competitions at the RDS Feis Ceoil and the AIMS New Ross Choral Festival, with their blend of pop, traditional and choral music proving to be a big hit with fans.
Both choirs have performed together in the past and this is sure to be a wonderful night in aid of several very good causes.
Tickets for the High Hopes Choir and SSE Airs Christmas Bells concert are available from Eventbrite.
