Welcome to Rainbows Ireland
Rainbows helps by providing a safe setting in which children and young people can share their feelings, emotions and struggles with others who have similar experiences. They are supported in this process by a trained facilitator.
Anima Chamber Choir concert for Rainbows
We are delighted that Anima Chamber Choir has chosen to support Rainbows through its annual Christmas concert which will be held on Sunday, 22nd December at University Church, St. Stephen's Green at 4.30pm. Tickets will cost €5 or €10 and will be available on the door.
The choir, which was founded in September 2008, sings a wide range of music and has perfromed in a number of Dublin venues, including The Peppercanister Church and The Church of St. Nicholas of Myra, Francis Street. In May 2012, ANIMA participated in the AIMS Choral Festival in New Ross where they were awarded first prize in the Chamber Music Competition and first prize in the Sacred Music Competition. The choir has also been a finalist on two occasions in the Lyric FM Choirs for Christmas competition.
