Clermont Chorale is a mixed adult choir of up to 28 members in North Louth, singing under the direction of our Musical
Director, Kevin Boushel.

Established in 2003 and based in Dundalk, they rehearse weekly throughout the academic year.

Clermont performs a wide range of music, from plainsong to folk and modern songs.

The group performs locally and competes nationally in various festivals with international trips every few years. Past tours include Italy, Russia, Germany, USA.

The most recent in-person performances were at St. Peter’s Basilica and the Irish College in Rome in May 2019 and with
‘A Winter’s Tale’ sold out concerts in Castlebellingham in December 2019 and November 2018.

Covid-19 canceled all competition and performance plans for Spring 2020, but the choir has moved completely online and
continued to repeat throughout the confinement.

The choir’s virtual performances of “Northern Lights” in June 2020 and “I Saw Three Ships” in December 2020 garnered thousands of views on Facebook. A new project, financed by Create Louth, will see the light of day.

The Chorale de Clermont is open to new members by audition for the new year which begins in September.
