The DIT Ballymun Lullaby Choir, under the leadership of our colleague Ron Cooney, is made up of singers from six local Ballymun Schools. For this special performance, the Choir will be joined by the National Children’s Choir, RTE Cór na  nÓg.  The conductor will be David Brophy, lecturer in the DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama.

 

As the performance will be for the invited delegates only, tickets won’t be available but it will be streamed worldwide. 

The Dublin bid to host the One Young World summit was led by former President of DITSU, Bog Coggins, and Dublin won the honour against strong competition from Hong Kong and Edinburgh.  To find out more about the summit click  on http://www.oneyoungworld.com/news/dublin-ireland-host-one-young-world-summit-2014
