The Songs

We know that picking your own songs is part of the fun of singing together, but to get the ball rolling, we are suggesting songs which we think we may all enjoy singing together at different times.

Feel free to make suggestions, we are always open to good ideas and the list is growing.  Find us on Facebook or Twitter and use #DawnChorusIreland

Some ideas for rehearsing together while staying apart:

  • Learn online, over the phone or from songs available through and The Royal Irish Academy of Music, on this site and through our social media
  • Sing along with family, friends, your neighbours
  • Join in an online class – we will start listing them here
  • Tune in to radio and TV features on RTE 
  • Sing at the kitchen table, over the fence, at your front gate with your neighbours, or in your favourite armchair
  • You might learn a new song, recall old ones, debate the best ones
  • Try new ways to sing, get creative and compose something new to share.

Above all, stay safe, stay within the government guidelines on social distancing!  Together while apart.
