Two great choirs come together for a Rock and Soul concert at the Civic Theatre, Tallaght this Sat 9 Mar, 8pm

The Soulful and The Line-Up are amateur community choirs based in Harold’s Cross and Stillorgan. Directed by Róisín Savage, both choirs were formed in 2012 and have approximately 45 singers in each group. The Line-Up’s repertoire includes songs from the Rock and Pop genres whereas The Soulful focuses on material from the Gospel and Soul traditions.

Some of The Soulful’s performances to date include performing at the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in The Shelbourne Hotel and for President Michael D Higgins at Light Up a Life in Our Lady’s Hospice Harold’s Cross. They also took to the stage at The Sugar Club in December for their debut concert performance.

Members of The Line-Up, featured in the Meteor Christmas ad campaign Let’s get Christmassy which aired nationally on radio and television. They too staged their debut gig in The Sugar Club to a sell-out audience. Both choirs were also involved in volunteering their services for The Mansion House Fuel Fund, which helped raise money for the Simon Community and St Vincent de Paul charities.
