DORDÀN, the local male choral group, are performing in Saint Paul’s church, Lisduggan on Thursday evening at 8pm in aid of the Holy Ghost Residential Home, the choir’s chosen cause.
Admission is free but there will be a bucket collection for anyone who wishes to contribute. Special guests will be the Mount Sion choir of YouTube fame, the brilliant Kalimbas and the much-vaunted Sunday Drivers.
Dordàn means buzz and the word was chosen by the choral group about four years ago. The choir’s membership is drawn from diverse backgrounds but all are brought together by a genuine love of music. Their repertoire is varied with an eclectic mix from across a range of musical genres which includes Gregorian chant, through to the different aspects of folk, pop and have even sung folk ditties emanating from the Congo. Included in that repertoire are choral works composed by their musical director Damien Kehoe.
The choir has performed extensively both at home and abroad in places like Normandy in France and Fabiano in Italy, where some of Damien’s choral work has been performed by local choirs there.
If you wish to contact the group call their chairman Eamon Cody at 086 3974150.
