Introduction

Limerick Choral Union is an oratorio community choir based in the heart of the city. Its aim is to make choral singing enjoyable and rewarding for the singers and the audience alike. Since its foundation in 1964, LCU has maintained its endeavours to encourage new talents into the choir and to continue to perform the best and most exciting choral works to its audience, under the musical direction of Malcolm Green.

A member of the Association of Irish Choirs AOIC, the LCU sees itself as an ambassador for Limerick, promoting its talents locally, nationally and internationally. The choir has toured and performed in France, Bulgaria, Poland, Slovenia, Italy and England. The choir has collaborated with many other choirs and over the years it has entered numerous competitions winning the Best Limerick Choir award in 1997.

It is a choir for both professionals and non-professionals; everyone is welcome providing they can sing in tune. A normal year consists of two major performances at the University Concert Hall in Limerick, participation in a choral festival, a trip abroad and an end of year mass. Families have grown up with the choir and it has been a tradition for many members to join along with their mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, husbands and wives. It is through this sense of belonging, pride and accomplishment that the choir continues to flourish.

LCU is a progressive choir, always learning new repertoire, singing in many languages - Irish, French, German, Latin, Italian and Russian and challenging both members and the audience to more complex and demanding choral works.
