Begin the festive season in style!

Irish Baroque Orchestra’s annual production of Handel’s masterpiece with Chamber Choir Ireland is a memorable and glorious occasion. Led by the esteemed Artistic Director of IBO, Peter Whelan, with step-out solos by the singers of Chamber Choir Ireland, the piece tells the universal story of triumph over trial, where life’s sorrows and despairs are met by overriding hope and unbridled joy.

The Irish Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir Ireland both receive principal funding from the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and are resident organisations of the National Concert Hall, Dublin.
