Limerick Choral Union – Ireland
Limerick Choral Union is based in Limerick, Ireland which is situated in the Mid West Region of Ireland. LCU was formed in 1964 and we are fast approaching our 60th anniversary , we are very proud to say that we have become stronger and stronger over those 60 years.
LCU is a community choir and we welcome everyone of all ages and singing ability , all we ask is that you can sing in tune…. the rest you will learn from the choir members and our wonderful Musical Director Malcom Green
Each year we perform two major concerts in the Concert Hall of the University of Limerick. Unfortunately , we had to take a long break due to the Covid pandemic, our last pre-Covid concert was in December 2019 so we were all delighted that we were able to make our come back in May 2022 with a memorial concert. We performed Faure’s Requiem and Beethoven’s Mass in C and dedicated the concert to all those who lost their lives during the Pandemic and also those who lost their lives in the war in the Ukraine.
It was a very moving concert and it reminded us of how important music and singing is.
So we are hopeful that from now on , we will be allowed to sing as normal and we are planning our next concert of Handel’s Messiah for next December. ! We also do various smaller concerts during the year for charities and festivals locally in Limerick.
Meanwhile , we are so thrilled to be attending this festival on the beautiful island of Sardinia, again, we had planned to be here in September 2020 but this had to be postponed until now … we are sure that our visit will be worth the very long wait !! We would like to thank you all for your welcome and hospitality and we are looking forward to sharing our music together. I would especially like to thank Guiliano and Barbara for all their hard work in organising this festival and look forward to catching up with our old friends.
