  1. Ode to Joy for Covid 19 frontline workers

    7 July 2020

    On 21 June last, over 20 members of Tallaght Choral Society performed an impromptu (socially distanced !) rendition of the specially commissioned ‘’Ode to Joy’’ on the steps of the Dominican Priory to voice our support for the frontline workers who have performed, and continue to perform, Trojan work on the Covid 19 pandemic.

    This event was part of the national effort of support which was created, organised and curated by Professor Jimmy Cavanagh, a previous longstanding conductor with TCS. Visit Twitter: @TallaghtChoral to hear us singing Ode to Joy. A short article also appeared in the Tallaght Echo

  4. TCS on Tour 2017

    20 November 2017

    To celebrate our 50th anniversary as a choir, TCS and friends travelled to Rome in October 2017 with music, merriment and magic in mind. We believe we achieved these three objectives with great gusto !

    We started off with an Evensong Service in All Saints, Anglican Church, near Piazza del Popolo. This very welcoming church and congregation really helped us to enjoy singing this lovely music.

    We then participated at Mass in San Clemente Basilica. This was a truly enjoyable day not least due to the enthusiasm and warmth of Prior, Fr. Tom McCarthy, OP. His personal and knowledgable tour of the 12th century basilica, over the 4th century basilica and down further to the 1st century Roman crypt, was, for many, the highlight of the trip. He allowed us sing 'Locus Iste' to savour the ecoustics of the 4th century area.

    The final musical performance was our participation in the concelebrated Mass at St. Peter's Basilica. An awesome venue and an occasion to be remembered.

    Outside the musical experiences, we had an absolute ball. We saw the usual sights, Colliseum, Sistine Chapel, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Forum, Borghese, pickpockets churches, paintings, hawkers, great punky guides, sunshine and Ophelia. We followed the maxim 'eat, drink and be merry' to the letter. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are looking forward to the next outing and bonding session.
