In Dublin’s Fair City – St Patrick’s Choristers’ Concert for Refugee Housing Appeal


St Patrick's ChoristersThe choristers of St Patrick’s Cathedral will be putting their voices behind Dublin & Glendalough’s Diocesan Refugee Housing Appeal with a special concert later this month. ‘In Dublin’s Fair City’ will take place in the cathedral on Friday March 24 at 6.15 pm.

The evening will feature the Cathedral Choristers with special guests, jazz singer/songwriter Suzanne Savage and Victoria Green on guitar. Admission is free and there will be a retiring collection for the housing appeal which plans to raise €300,000 over three years to support a new housing and integration project being coordinated by the Irish Refugee Council.

The programme, which is suitable for the whole family, includes Irish favourites Danny Boy, Cockles & Mussels and The Lark in the Clear Air alongside insanely toe–tapping Jazz Songs of Innocence by Bob Chilcott and a few very familiar jazz standards thrown in for good measure.

While admission is free, advance registration is recommended. Reserve online for free by clicking: https://stpatrickscathedral.digitickets.co.uk/event/2125657?catID=6441&_ga=1.37691616.1722058316.1459531947 

The Cathedral Choristers have been at the heart of St Patrick’s since 1432. For nearly 800 years the choristers have sung daily in the cathedral and been educated in the choir school – the last of its kind in Ireland. In addition to singing daily services, the choristers perform regularly in concerts, broadcasts, recordings and tours. They have released two CDs and a third is due in the autumn.

Suzanne Savage began playing violin when she was eight. She received classical training in school but a more colourful education in gigging with bands in Belfast from heavy rock to funk fusion before moving to jazz and contemporary music. Having become established in the Northern Irish music scene, she won a scholarship to Fabrica Musica in Italy where she worked with musicians from all over the world. She is currently based between Belfast, Dublin and Karlsruhe in Germany.
