Theodora worked in tandem with the Playlist committee to establish the choir in September 2018, and under her direction, the choir performed live on RTE 2FM, and opened the main stage at Beatyard Festival, and even more impressively..... helped us survive as a virtual choir during the pandemic. Theodora creates bespoke arrangements of songs in a variety of styles to suit each choir that she works with, and was pivotal in helping Playlist find our unique sound.
in addition to working with Choral groups, Theodora is a professional musician and has played and sang with The Coronas, Aimee, Mary Black, Roisin O, Planet Parade, Nile St. James, Sinead White, CC Brez, Jaxson, and the Turning Pirate Mix Tape House Band, among others. In 2020, she established the Theodora Byrne Ensemble, a mixed-voice contemporary choir, and has collaborated virtually with Irish artists such as Lisa Hannigan, Bell X1, Wallis Bird, Saint Sister, Ciaran Lavery and Maria Kelly.
We were absolutely honoured to have Theo with us at the inception of our Choir - and hereby award her lifelong Playlister status!!
