Dr Desmond Earley, Artistic Director and Founder, UCD Choral Scholars

The very first Spring concert of UCD Choral Scholars took place on Wednesday 21st April 1999. I am delighted to announce there will be a special programme of activities to mark our upcoming twentieth anniversary year from September 2018 - June 2019. I hope you can join us in sharing some of the exciting events scheduled to celebrate this milestone for the choir, including the release of our next disc, a gala concert in Ireland, and a much anticipated return to the United States.

As we continue to strive to be an internationally-acclaimed collegiate scholarship ensemble, representing excellence in the performance of chamber-choral repertoire, it is imperative that we provide outstanding opportunities to our students. Your support greatly enhances the experience of each scholar. I hope that if you are moved by our music-making, you will consider making a donation in honour of our upcoming twentieth-anniversary season.

With renewed thanks,
Desmond Earley
