Sunday December 3rd – Rejoice Gospel Choir
Formed in 2018, the Rejoice Gospel Choir perform in authentic gospel style, drawing on the rich roots of gospel music and its relationship with other genres such as soul, funk, blues and jazz.
They will be performing throughout the museum from 6pm at EPIC on Sunday, December 3rd.
Sunday December 10th – Skerries Sea Sharps Choir
The Skerries Sea Sharps choir was founded in 2010 by five local women in Skerries, the bustling fishing village located in North County Dublin.
In 2013 the choir had the great honour of singing for Uachtarán na hÉireann, Michael D Higgins at the opening of a special memorial in Skerries for those lost at sea.
They will be performing throughout the museum from 6pm at EPIC on Sunday, December 10th.
This event is supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media’s “Night Time Economy-After Hours at the Museum Scheme”, helping to create a more diverse Night-Time Economy sector for both local communities and visitors alike. Speaking at the launch of the scheme, Catherine Martin T.D. said:
International Museum day is being marked this week and we celebrate how Museums and Galleries throughout the country are the beating heart of culture in our communities. They are the keepers of our history, reflect our cultural identity and provide a space for creativity which future generations can enjoy.
