During MusicTown 2019 the choirs of Dublin Choral Foundation, Piccolo Lasso and The Lassus Scholars will lead Dubliners young and old on a musical tour around the city centre. Children are invited to bring along their favourite toy animals – and also other dolls and teddies to meet the animals – and join with the singers in visiting ‘Old McDonald’s Farm in song!
The young members of Piccolo Lasso will certainly bring their toy animals along to meet some ancient Dublin characters, particularly Molly Malone, and invite those whom they meet along the way to join in singing not only ‘Old McDonald had a Farm’ but also well known favourites animal nursery rhymes, animal songs in Irish (including Tá’n Coileach ag Fogairt an Lae, Tairse ‘Bhaile Mháirín Ó, An Poc ar Buile) and Dublin songs which will include I’ll tell me Ma, Spanish Lady, Dublin can be Heaven, Molly Malone, Biddy Mulligan, Dicey Riley, Dublin in the Rare Auld Times, When Irish eyes are Smiling etc.
