Dublin Choral Festival takes place this year on Saturday at St Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin at 8pm.

The festival will feature mixed-voice choirs and individual singers from a variety of backgrounds joining together to sing en masse. 

Three days of rehearsals will lead participants to a grande finale performance in the historic and iconic St Patrick’s Cathedral. Dublin Choral Festival will celebrate the great heritage of Celtic musical inspiration reflective of the 1,000-year Celtic heritage of Dublin city. 

The 2024 festival chorus will be under the artistic direction of Emmy-winning and Grammy-nominated composer and conductor Jake Runestad who has received commissions from leading ensembles and organizations including VOCES8, Washington National Opera, the National Chorus of Korea, and the Los Angeles Master Chorale.  Jake’s recent and upcoming conducting engagements include Carnegie Hall, Cadogan Hall (London), and festivals in Europe, Canada and across the USA and has been dubbed a ‘choral rockstar’ by American media.
