Co-Orch Dublin was set up in 2011, to support Irish musicians, composers, conductors and charities As its name suggests, Co-Orch is a cooperative. This means that all aspects of the orchestra's life are chosen by its members including the concert programmes, dates and partner charities. We are also keen to bring classical music to new venues and audiences and insist that anywhere we play has a bar . . .

To date, Co-Orch has raised over €150,000 for ARC Cancer Support, the Children's Rights Alliance, Saplings School, GOAL, Spinal Injuries Ireland, Barnardos, The Red Door School, The Laura Brennan Children's Trust, Turn2Me, Focus Ireland, the Immigrant Council of Ireland and Operation Smile.

Dun Laoghaire Choral society is one of Ireland’s premiere choirs  regularly performing with Artists such as Andrea Bocelli and Katherine Jenkins in venues such as Dublin’s 3 arena and National Concert Hall.

Cantairi Avondale is a multi- award winning chamber choir from Dublin which performs both Nationally and internationally and has won prizes at all of Ireland's major choral festival.

‘Verdi’s Requiem is a once in a lifetime work, The Olympia is a once in a lifetime venue, and April 1 is going to be a once in a lifetime performance. 200 performers giving it everything they have  in one of the greatest works of dramatic music ever written. Never mind Spinal Tap - THIS is turning the amp to 11! And, it’s all in aid of a fantastic cause - the Marie Keating Foundation. What’s not to love!’
