On 22nd November 2020, St Cecilia's Day, we celebrated our 25th anniversary.
Sadly, the Covid-19 pandemic has made it impossible to meet face to face. However, we are still celebrating the anniversary season in style. Watch this space for more information as the season progresses.
We have released a 25th anniversary video, filmed in five of our favourite churches in Belfast, which you can view from this page. There is more information in the description on YouTube, and you can find out more about the buildings - and why they are special to us - here. These are only a small number of the 115 venues in which we have performed.
We were delighted to have an hour long feature dedicated to sacred music and our first 25 years broadcast by BBC Radio Ulster Classical Connections on the day of our anniversary. In this programme, John Toal interviews Archbishop Eamon Martin, Sir James MacMillan, founder members The Priests, our Musical Director Donal McCrisken and member Sheelagh Greer. It can be listened to on BBC Sounds (starts at 1:05).
We are also planning online events during the remainder of the season - details will be published here as soon as they are available.
The following timeline shows just some of the memorable events of our first 25 years, and at the bottom of the page you can view a video photo montage covering some highlights from our story to date.
