About Us:
The Oblate Gospel Choir (founded 2010) is a community focused choir. Our members are made up of people of all ages, faiths, and backgrounds, from all parts of Dublin and we’re always open to welcoming new people.  If you love to sing, this is a great opportunity for you to explore and develop your talent; we have weekly rehearsals (WEdnesdays 8-9.30pm) in the Oblate Basketball Hall and we sing in the church every month. People with any level of singing ability are welcome. A short audition is required.

Our repertoire is a varied one – from Gospel music to Mozart to Beyoncé! We sing songs such as ….Let it Be, I believe I can fly, One Love, I’ll Be There, Ave Maria (Beyoncé), I Say a Little Prayer, Dona Nobis Pacem, Lean on Me and many more. As mentioned, we rehearse every Wednesday night from 7.30 to 9.30pm in the Basketball Hall beside Mary Immaculate Church in Inchicore.

We’re a dedicated but easy going bunch, we take the music seriously while having fun along the way. We perform regularly in our local parish of Inchicore but have also performed in more “secular” venues such as the Mill Theatre in Dundrum and The Sugar Club in Leeson St. We’ve sung for charity groups such as WALK (association for people with intellectual disability) and for the last two years we’ve taken part in the annual AIMS Choral competition. In May 2014, we came second in the Gospel choir section of the competition.
