Welcome to the Irish Doctors Choir

Please browse our website and contact us if you have any questions about performances or membership.

The Irish Doctors Choir aims to keep doctors connected with good music-making despite the demands of their busy careers.

The choir plans to give two major performances each year and to donate its concert profits to charity.  During rehearsal breaks,  they hope to to offer short ‘pop up’ performances to local patient and carer groups wherever they go.

Irish Doctors Choir members are enthusiastic and experienced singers, mostly but not exclusively doctors or medical students. These committed singers, who can prepare music independently before a short intensive rehearsal series, will have opportunities to perform some  of the great works from the classical choral repertoire to a high  standard and in exciting venues.

Although our performances will be in Ireland, singers from other countries are very welcome.

If you think that this choir might suit you, have a look at our ‘‘Join Us’ page and/or email us at irishdoctorschoir@gmail.com for more information.

We will be delighted to hear from  you!
