Time: 12:30 pm
Venue: Medieval Museum

What are you doing this Sunday, Music at the Museum welcomes High Hopes Choir this coming Sunday 13th March for the lunchtime concert.

High Hopes Choir, the remarkable story of Saint Vincent de Paul and Focus Ireland bringing talented people together. The idea for the Choir was the brainchild of David Brophy. David approached RTE with the concept of a Choir composed of homeless people and people who have experienced homelessness at some stage in their lives. It initially started in Dublin and Waterford in partnership with FOCUS Ireland, Simon and the Saint Vincent de Paul. RTE enthusiastically supported the concept and to date Tyrone Productions have produced a series of three episodes.

To date the Dublin and Waterford Choirs, both number about 35 members, male and female. 2015 has seen the successful development of a new choir in Cork. The choir has performed with some of Irelands leading musical talents including Kodaline, Lisa Hannigan Brian Kennedy and Waterfords own Ritchie Hayes to name but a few.

The Choir has performed on The Late Late Show, the Miriam O’Callaghan Show and has sung in the Christchurch Cathedrals in both Waterford and Dublin. One of the Choirs most recent successes was their performance in the WIT Chapel.

In 2015 the Choir performed for the President of Ireland, at Áras an Uachtaráin. The Choir also performed at Electric Picnic, Waterford Winterval, the 3 Arena and will shortly be performing on behalf of the IRFU Ireland Italy 6 Nations International.
