The University of Ulster Choir will perform its final concert of the season in the ecclesiastical setting of St Eugene’s Cathedral in Derry City.

Songs of Solace will see the 70-strong choir joined by Gail Evans on piano in a performance of Morten Lauridsen’s ‘Lux aeterna’.

The programme also includes Howard Goodall’s ‘Eternal Light’ and ‘When David Heard’ by Eric Whitacre.

Under the direction of Dr Shaun Ryan, Lecturer in Music at Ulster, the Choir has gained considerable popular and critical acclaim for its distinctive and dramatic performances over the past decade.

Based within the School of Creative Arts at Magee, the Choir is composed primarily of music undergraduates and also includes students from other disciplines within the University as well as staff, Ulster alumniand choral singers from the wider community.

The upcoming performance, which takes place on Thursday 19th April at 8.15pm in St Eugene’s Cathedral, marks the end of this season’s concert series which included recitals in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dundalk and Clonard Monastry, Belfast.
