City of Dublin Chamber Orchestra

Mullingar Choral Society and Dublin Baroque Players

The City of Dublin Chamber Orchestra, formerly the Dublin Baroque Players, was founded in 1966. Its members are music teachers, music students, many with professional career ambitions, and gifted musicians from other walks of life. The orchestra provides members with ensemble music-making experiences of challenge and variety. Amateurs in the true sense of the word, the common thread of a love of music weaves its magic through orchestral performances of the highest standard. The City of Dublin Chamber Orchestra has enjoyed a successful collaboration with Mullingar Choral Society for an uninterrupted fourteen years (as of 2014). Among major works by choir and orchestra are Karl Jenkins’s The Armed Man and Duruflé’s Requiem, (performed both in the Cathedral of Christ the King, Mullingar, and in the National Concert Hall, Dublin), Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Handel’s Messiah, Orff’s Carmina Burana, Puccini’s Messa di Gloria, and Mozart’s Coronation Mass.
