Choirs at Christchurch III – Guys and Dolls

The Cork International Choral Festival’s annual “Choirs at Christchurch” fringe concert brings a cappella group Guys and Dolls to the beautiful setting of Triskel Christchurch for a lunchtime performance.

Guys and Dolls were formed in July 2016 to compete in the open mixed quartet contest at the Irish Association of Barbershop Singers convention in Cork, October 2016. Immediately enjoying the experience of singing together, they were only delighted to place first in the competition, and had no reservations about continuing to sing together. Guys and Dolls take a great interest in all styles of modern a cappella singing, including close harmony jazz and popular music.

As part of the Cork International Choral Festival’s annual “Choirs at Christchurch” fringe concerts, Guys and Dolls will bring their voices to the beautiful setting of Triskel Christchurch for a lunchtime performance.
