Limerick Gospel Choir has been together for over 15yrs and currently under the direction of Mr. David Idioh.

This choir are Limerick’s longest gospel choir who have won many awards in the annual Limerick Choral Festival including Best Limerick Choir in 2018. The choir have appeared on RTE a few times and were the support act to Harlem Gospel Choir. There is a great sense of friendship and community spirit within the choir and it is this friendship and respect that helps them to bond together and grow in strength.

In the years they have been together they have shared a lot of memorable moments with the gospel songs that they have become to love and the opportunities they have had and to mark this for one night only they want to showcase some of their award-winning gospel songs and favourite unique arrangements that they love to entertain with and have been popular with the choir over the years, the crowd pleasers, the classic gospel tunes that we are all familiar with, contemporary and traditional gospel songs and acapella sounds that all contribute to the Gospel genre.

As with all Gospel Music, this night will be filled with joy, soul and energizing sounds.
