Don’t miss this Gig: Summer in Dublin with the SitKoD choir
The Songs in the Key of D (SitKoD) choir have been busy rehearsing their new show ‘Summer in Dublin’ for the National Concert Hall on Wednesday, 2nd of July. Anto, Darren and 60-odd other Dub residents will be singing an expanded repertoire of songs from their previous sold out gigs at Fringe Festival and the NCH John Field Room earlier this year. They’ll also be joined by Trillogy, a three part male harmony group, for a few tunes.
This concert will feature covers of classic Dublin songs like Raglan Road, The Ferryman and Grace along with contemporary tunes like Damien Dempsey’s Seize the Day, Imelda May’s Mayhem and they’re even going to take on Handel’s Messiah (first performed in Dublin in 1742).
The young, inspired musical directors, Chris O’Sullivan and Killian Grumley Traynor, will lead the choir on the night. Tickets are €18-20 from the National Concert Hall web site, box office or phone (01) 417 0000.

On a personal note, we’re all having a ball in this choir. Rehearsals are fun, the nights out are mighty and such an enthusiastic group of people you won’t find anywhere else. The show will sell out, so please book your tickets and come along to see us. You might even have a pint with us afterwards.
See you there!
