About us

Based in Terenure College, Dublin, we are a choir of approximately 50 members. In addition to great sacred music by composers such as Handel, Mozart and Rutter, our repertoire now includes opera favourites, popular songs and songs from musical theatre.

 We have performed on RTÉ television, at venues in Ireland and abroad, and we plan to do more. Since our foundation in 2013, we have remained strongly committed to musical excellence and also to the informal and social aspects of choral singing.

Fr. James Eivers O.Carm guided the choir as Musical Director since its origins in Terenure College R.F.C., and we remain so thankful for his leadership and direction. Emmanuel Lawler became our Musical Director in 2022, and we now enjoy the benefits of his wealth of vocal knowledge and international performing experience.

Our connections and ties with Terenure College and with the wider Carmelite community are deep-rooted, although many of the choir’s members had no previous connection with either of them. We have frequently collaborated with the young men of the Terenure College school choirs, and we look forward to collaborating with them in future events. For our major performances, we are often joined by professional soloists and professional musicians.

Our calendar for the coming year will include a formal concert on October 22nd, Christmas carols and the singing of much-loved popular songs in local nursing homes, in addition to the annual Carol Service on December 17th, singing at Christmas Eve mass and monthly masses in the beautiful College Chapel.

The choir’s rehearsals follow the academic year, and take place on Thursday evenings, 7.30 - 9pm in the very comfortable facilities of Terenure College, where there is ample parking.

We are currently welcoming new members. For further information please contact tccc.emmanuel@gmail.com
