New Dublin Voices

Music for Wexford is delighted to announce the first Wexford recital by New Dublin Voices. The fascinating programme will feature sacred and secular works from Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Denmark, Norway, Finland, USA and Ireland. The composers and arrangers featured include Palestrina, Stanford, Howard Goodall and Michael McGlynn.

This award-winning chamber choir was founded in 2005 by Bernie Sherlock and presents concert programmes that are fresh, innovative, and exciting, ranging widely in style and period from the medieval to the contemporary. The choir takes special pleasure in exploring the music of living composers, leading the way in performing, premiering, commissioning and disseminating Irish choral music and introducing international choral music to Irish audiences.

NDV has won prizes at major competitions in France, Hungary, Germany, Finland, Belgium, Spain, England and Italy, including first prize at the Concorso Polifonico in Arezzo, Italy in August 2013, the Grand Prix at the 12th Budapest International Choir Competition 2009, all six prizes at the 2011 International Choir Contest of Maasmechelen, Belgium, the Fleischmann International Trophy at the 2015 Cork International Choral Festival, and 2nd prize at the 2016 Harald Andersén Chamber Choir Competition in Helsinki. NDV is very happy to have been selected as one of 24 choirs world-wide (and the first Irish choir) to perform at the 11th World Choral Symposium, to be held in Barcelona this July.

The singers who make up New Dublin Voices come from many backgrounds but have in common high levels of experience and musicianship, a commitment to attracting new audiences, and, above all, a love of performing excellent choral music.
