Fàilte gu Còisir Ghàidhlig Dhùn Dèagh

Welcome to Dundee Gaelic Choir


History

Dundee Gaelic Choir, officially known as the Dundee Gaelic Music Association, was formed in 1896 and enjoyed early success in 1903 as the first ever winners of the prestigious Lovat and Tullibardine Trophy which they went on to win on several other occasions.  The Association went into abeyance in 1939 but was reconstituted in 1966.  In 2017 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the reconstitution with a dinner, ceilidh and sing-song ! It was well  attended by current and former members including Isobel Darroch, our original conductor from 1966 !
 

Dundee Gaelic Choir

The Dundee Gaelic Choir promotes the Gaelic language and culture through music and song. We compete in provincial mods throughout the year and at the Royal National Mod each October. We also entertain at Highland Societies and ceilidhs throughout the Tayside area.

The choir is conducted by Frances Menter with fun, vim and vigour ! Frances has extensive experience in working with a range of choirs and applies her wonderful talents with us.  While based in Dundee, the choir draws members from Dundee, Angus, Perthshire and Fife. 

We are a friendly choir and learn a range of music from tradiitional Gaelic songs to modern Gaelic ballads written for Run Rig ! 

Keep an eye out for us as we would love you to come and hear us perform. 





 

Meetings

The choir meets for practice every Monday night at 7.15pm in the St. Mary Magdalene's Church Halls, Dudhope Crescent Road, Dundee.

New members are always welcome – especially men!  Prior knowledge of Gaelic is not required as tuition will be given.
