DkIT Choir

The DkIT Choir is a large-scale choir consisting of students and staff at Dundalk Institute of Technology.

The choir gives regular performances of mainstream choral repertoire and forms the principal musical element of DkIT’s hugely popular annual Christmas concert. The choir hosts an annual Spring Choral Concert which focuses on sacred repertoire. Recent concerts have taken place at a range of venues including St Oliver Plunkett Church, Blackrock; Green Church, Dundalk; Redemptorist Church, Dundalk; Church of the Holy Redeemer, Dundalk; St Patrick's Church, Dundalk and the Cathedral of St Patrick and St Colman, Newry.

Works performed in recent years include Britten's A Ceremony of Carols, Handel's Messiah, Haydn’s Creation, Charpentier’s Te Deum and Carissimi's Jephte. In 2010 the choir performed a special joint concert in the Ulster Hall, Belfast with the South Ulster Youth Orchestra featuring specially commissioned piece Gullion Tales by composer Brian Irvine. In 2011 the choir performed a new choral work, The Rose Cantata, by Siubhán Ó Dubháin in St Joseph's Redemptorist Church, Dundalk.
