Vivaldi GLORIA: our summer concert, June 2023

Our summer concert for June 2023 brings together three of Galway choirs, to raise funds for Claddagh Watch, to support their work creating a safer environment around Galway city’s waterways.

The evening will include performances by Ignite Gospel choir, Galway’s premier male voice a cappella group, the Galway Baytones and string trio Sophia Mantu, Ciara Mantu and Fiona McKree, fresh from their award-winning performances at the Feis Ceoil. The anchor work is our performance of the Vivaldi Gloria in D major RV589.

Our summer concert traditionally brings together a diverse range of choirs, and we also aim to give a platform to emerging performers, and to showcase the breadth of singing opportunities in Galway. 

The Vivaldi GLORIA is a multi-movement setting of 'Gloria in excelsis Deo' with beloved sections which express the joy of music, and others which are deeper and more challenging for singers, but still appealing to a wide audience.  We will be accompanied by organist Peter Barley.”

The concert is at 8pm on Saturday 10 in the Augustinian Church in Middle St. Tickets are €20 and must be purchased in advance from choir members, Eventbrite, or from Opus II music shop in High Street.
