The Return of Tredagh Singers

Tredagh Singers, Drogheda’s longest established and most successful mixed voice choir, returns to action after the long pandemic imposed break . The comeback concert will be held in St.Peter’s Church of Ireland on 27th of May , 8pm .

It will certainly be a joyful affair and the choir will be joined by our local orchestral friiends and invited soloists for festive excerpts from  Handel’s Messiah, pieces which we were all set to present last Christmas before yet another Covid wave swept that plan, like so many another, away. The Messiah is, however, a  moveable feast,  so these pieces will now resound on an early summer evening for  a change. There is not any time of year when great music should not be heard.

 The choir has  worked hard in the background since Christmas and is currently in top form .  We have also recently perfected Karl Jenkins’ tremendously exciting ‘Exsultate Jubilate’ and premiered our own perfomance of it in a recent concert in Clontarf, garnering great praise from those present.  Along with those , quite a few other new pieces will also be presented on the night. Behind all this progress, of course, is our talented conductor Geraldine Doggett, who has for many years fulfilled this role with her usual jovial charisma. 

      Our planned concert will raise much welcome funds for The Alzheimer Society of Ireland, Drogheda Branch.Tredagh’s many local followers will know what to expect, especially those used to hearing us at our long established Chrismas concerts, but if you are someone who has never happened to hear us , give us a try on 27 May and you wil most likey be surprised and delighted by the standard to which we and our friends perform. In the true spirit of the amateur musician the love of what we do -and that  is what that very word means-  regularly shines forth in our concerts.
