GLÓRIA DUBLIN'S LESBIAN AND GAY CHOIR
Glória, Dublin’s Lesbian and Gay Choir, was founded in October 1995. An ad placed in Gay Community News invited singers interested in forming a choir. About 25 people came along on that first night – some who still sing with the choir – and today we have a singing membership of around 54. The choir’s repertoire is wide-ranging; from musicals to madrigals and from classical to camp. The songs are chosen sometimes to surprise, sometimes to challenge, but always to entertain!
Founded in October 1995 Glória was originally established to provide a safe and comfortable space for gay and lesbian people to meet and sing together, and to promote a positive image of Ireland’s growing LGBT community. Glória maintains an environment that is inclusive, welcoming and supportive of people from all backgrounds and different life experiences irrespective of gender identity, or sexuality. Just as our repertoire is varied so is our membership, with singers from all walks of life. And for some, it has been the place where they met
Glória has performed extensively throughout Ireland in Dublin, Belfast, Carlingford, Castlebar, Cavan, Cork, Drogheda, Dun Laoghaire, Galway, Limerick, New Ross, Tralee, Sligo, Waterford, and Westport. We are looking forward to adding to this list in the future. Do get in touch if you think you might be able to host a concert or if you would like to invite us to sing at some event or other.
Internationally the choir has traveled to perform in London on a number of occasions, and in connection with the GALA Choruses Festivals, we have been to Montréal in Canada and twice to the US; to Boston, Miami, and San José.
