Expo World Choir

Thursday 9th December, Ireland presented the Expo World Choir, a special night of song and celebration of Irish music.

As well as our Expo World Choir, featuring participants from all around the world, this special event featured an all-star Irish ensemble and soloists performing great Irish songs from ‘You Raise Me Up’ to U2’s ‘One’. The event was led and coached by conductor David Brophy, who has worked with artists as diverse as Lang Lang and U2.David is renowned in Ireland for creating special choirs in Ireland where everyone is welcome – no prior singing experience required!

We invited the participating countries, Expo staff, hosts, guests and UAE residents, to come together for this project which embodies Expo’s collective and collaborative ethos. The performance took place at 7.30pm on 9 December, in Dubai.

This incredible event surpassed expectations, with participants of 148 nationalities registering to take part and over 1,000 singers on the night.
