Our partnership has allowed choirs from home and abroad an opportunity to enjoy the challenge of participation in the performance of a work integral to the history of Dublin as it is to the history of high-art music. 2013 marks the beginning of what we hope will be an annual festival of music making in Dublin.
Not only is this event a celebration of Handel’s work but we will also be making a donation to the very worthy Focus Ireland (http://www.focusireland.ie/). Focus Ireland is a registered charity that works to prevent people becoming, remaining or returning to homelessness. The organisation was founded in 1985 by Sr. Stanislaus Kennedy, in response to the needs of a group of homeless women. Focus Ireland’s vision is that ‘everyone has a right to a place they can call home’ and the organisation works to make this vision a reality for thousands of people every year.
