Over 2,000 students perform in Emmanuel concerts in Dublin

A live musical event, run by the Dublin archdiocese for teenagers, saw over 2,000 young people from schools all over Dublin perform liturgical music this week.

Emmanuel is a live concert series where young people learn new and old Church music and hymns and then perform live with an orchestra in front of large audiences in Dublin’s Helix.

Running from Tuesday to Thursday this week, 700 students performed each day, including girls from St Mary’s School for the Deaf.  Students use the music they learn at Emmanuel in school Masses and Liturgies throughout the year.
