We are looking for funding to help us to record some of our incredible arrangements of Dublin classics, and some of the fresh music coming from the city today.
Founded by Eoin Kilkenny as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival in 2013, Songs In The Key of ‘D’ has gone on to grow to a membership of over 70 people from across the city and has performed to sold out crowds in the National Concert Hall.
The choir has a vast repertoire, from Handel to Mozart, and, Lynott to Drew. They perform a special blend of old Dublin stalwarts to some of the best music from contemporary Dublin artists.
It's important to us that the city reconnects with some of the music that has made the city so special and that it is sung by the people living in it in 2014.
Rewards available to funders include advance copy of our album, copies of arrangement, tickets to an exclusive Christmas concert on Dec 2nd in UCD, and even a chance to sing with the choir!
All members of the choir are volunteers and in order to keep the choir as open to everybody as possible we don’t charge members a fee to join. Therefore, we would really love your support to help us raise the money to record this new album. It is important to us that this unique group has the opportunity to record the songs of their city, and so they can be kept alive through time.
We are aiming to raise over €6,000 to help us cover the cost of rehearsal venues, sound engineers, mics, mastering the tracks, designing the CD case and producing the final CD. The total cost will be over €11,000 and while we hope to raise some money through a fundraising concert and private donations – this Fund it campaign will make the bulk of the album costs. Through your generous funding we can make this album for Dublin City!

Thanks again for your support of Songs In The Key of D
This morning, after many months of hard work, we sent the album to the presses to be completed! This would not have been possible without you funding us.
We expect this process to take 2 weeks and then we hope to have the albums to send out to you.
For those of you who wish to see us perform live our launch night for the album will be on May 13th in National Concert Hall. You can book tickets here: https://www.nch.ie/Online/Songs-In-The-Key-Of-D-13May15

Thanks to all the generous donations we made it to our goal of 6000 euro, which is amazing. The project is live for another day if you know anyone who would still like to contribute. It’s still possible to get an advance copy of our album or tickets to our exclusive concert on 2nd December.

Thanks so much for all your help so far in getting us funded. We have a last few days to get us over the line - and if we do not make our target then we don't get any of the money.
Everyone support, online and in person has been wonderful and no matter what happens its great to know that the choir has such passionate supporters and friends.

Happy Friday - New Video

Thanks so much for all your help and encouragement in helping us to raise money to record a new album of Dublin songs.
Rehearsals started last week, with a fantastic attendance despite the bank holiday. Everyone was keen to get back into it and prepare for our concert on December 2nd.
You may have seen our video which is attached to this campaign. We put a second one together, which features more extracts from our NCH concert in July and some of the choir talking about their favourite parts of Dublin City.
You can check that out here: http://youtu.be/2xen50gQj0o
Thanks to the contributions so far we are well on our way to achieving our goal however there is still a bit to go. We would be very grateful if you were willing to pass on details of our fundit to your family and friends and anyone who might be interested in our rewards, such as tickets to our christmas concert, pre ordering albums and much more.
If you want to get in touch with us you can email to firstname.lastname@example.org, check us out on facebook at facebook.com/songsinthekeyofd or twitter @keyofdchoir.
