Celebrate Christmas with DIT Conservatory of Music & Drama

Posted: 21 November, 2017

With just over four weeks to go, we hope you will forgive us for getting in the spirit of Christmas with a trio of delightful musical and dramatic events presented by DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama.

Starting on December 1st, the DIT Conservatory of Music & Drama Christmas calendar is brimming with festive cheer with something to suit all ages and tastes. The National Concert Hall will host the first event of the season, the DIT Chamber Choir Annual Christmas Lunchtime Concert featuring seasonal music through the ages performed by vocal students of DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama and led by renowned Choral conductor, Bernie Sherlock. Tickets can be purchased at the National Concert Hall website.

The second occasion of this Yuletide season will take place in the atmospheric surroundings of St Ann’s Church, Dawson Street on 6th December at 8.00 pm. ‘Advent and Christmas Music’ presents Christmas arrangements by Buxtehude, Mendelssohn, Lauridsen, Pärt, Sandström and much, much more. The DIT Chamber Choir, Junior Choir and Choral Society will all perform on night expertly led by conductors Simon Harden and Bernie Sherlock. Tickets for Advent and Christmas Music are now available on Eventbrite.

The final performance of the season will be a charming adaptation of everyone’s favourite Christmas film, It’s a Wonderful Life, directed by Michael McCabe and starring DIT 3rd-year Drama students. Follow George Bailey as he questions his place in the world only to be reminded by his guardian angel, Clarence, what he means to those that know him well. Performances of A Wonderful Life will take place in DIT Rathmines Theatre and tickets are now available on Eventbrite.
