We finish the season with the Phil Kids and our second European première of the year, Christopher Marshall's Earthsong !

"The Phil", led by music director Stephen Doughty, is Northern Ireland's only symphonic choir and performs at least four concerts per year, many alongside the Ulster Orchestra.   This includes the traditional performances of Handel's Messiah which we have undertaken each Christmas since 1886!

In August 2017 we enjoyed a highly successful 3-date concert tour, our first, where we sang to full houses in Poland and the Ukraine.  More "firsts" follow in the 2017-18 season as we will give not one, but two(!), European premières - Stuart Scott's Requiem Brevis in November 2017 and Christopher Marshall's Earthsong in May 2018 at our final concert of this season.


In June we have an additional concert, the first of two with Tallaght Choral Society.  Together we will be performing Carl Orff's Carmina Burana and Morten Lauridsen's Lux Aeterna at the National Concert Hall, Dublin.  In October they will be coming up to Belfast to join us as we do it all over again!
