Our next concert takes place in St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin at 7.30pm on April 6, 2024 and features works commemorating the centenaries of three prolific composers: C. V. Stanford (1852–1924), Bedřich Smetana (1824–1884), and Anton Bruckner (1824–1896). Go to our Events page for more details.
The Goethe Choir – Dublin’s international choir – is seeking to attract new members. Why not join a friendly and cosmopolitan choir and get a chance to sing quality music in top-class performances and venues? Go to Join Us for more information.
Singing and performing since 1965, the Dublin-based Goethe Choir (formerly the Goethe-Institut Choir) is a mixed choir which brings a varied programme of great choral music to audiences at home and abroad.
The choir currently has about 70 members of many different nationalities, giving it a unique cosmopolitan and international flavour. We perform at least three concerts per year with professional orchestras or accompaniment in the major Dublin venues and over the years have undertaken multiple trips abroad.
The choir is always looking for new recruits in each voice part (soprano, alto, tenor or bass). If you are interested in joining, details of how to contact the choir for an audition can be found on the Join us page on this website.
As a sample of the choir’s singing, here’s a short video which presents a series of clips of the choir in performance, beginning with an extract from Haydn’s Missa Brevis in St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin, followed by Bruckner’s Locus Iste, performed by a section of the choir in St. Michael’s Church in Hamburg and ending with a clip from a concert given with the Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel in the National Concert Hall in Dublin:
