CLAS­SI­CAL New Dublin Voices Multi-award-win­ning choir New Dublin Voices and their conductor Bernie Sher­lock present a typ­i­cally mixed pro­gramme with the em­pha­sis on the mu­sic of our own time. April, of course, is the month of the Cork In­ter­na­tional Cho­ral Fes­ti­val (Wed­nes­day 26th to Sun­day 30th), whose top prize, the Fleis­chmann In­ter­na­tional Tro­phy, is among New Dublin Voices’ suc­cesses. Sher­lock is one of this year’s ad­ju­di­ca­tors, so the choir’s Cork per­for­mances on Fri­day 28th and Sat­ur­day 29th will be part of the fes­ti­val’s non­com­pet­i­tive pro­gramme. FUNDRAISER Re­peal in the Key of 8 There are few fundrais­ing gigs as im­por­tant as this, and with a line-up of mu­si­cians and per­form­ers as strong as David Gray, Mary Black, Neil Han­non, Lisa O’Neill, Paul Noo­nan’s Printer Clips project, Camille O’Sullivan, Le Galaxie, Roisin O, Wyvern Lingo and Loah (above), it’s dif­fi­cult to come up with any rea­sons not to at­tend. But there’s more than just mu­sic. The ar­ray of con­trib­u­tors in­cludes per­former/ac­tivist Panti, con­vener of the coali­tion to re­peal the 8th Amend­ment Aibhe Smyth, Poet Lau­re­ate Paula Mee­han, writer/ac­tivist Una Mul­lally, In­de­pen­dent Se­na­tor Lynn Ruane, poet Feli­cia Olu­sanyo, writer/ed­i­tor Róisín In­gle and Trav­eler Ac­tivist Eileen Flynn. MC is ac­tor/ac­tivist Tara Flynn. Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin noon, Adm free
