Pieces performed in the past have included Faure Elegie cello concerto, Bruch Violin Concerto, Sergei Rachmaninoff's 2nd Piano Concerto, Tchaikovsky's 1st Piano Concerto, and other well-known works.

Choir[edit]

The Dublin Jerome Choir as a whole performs yearly Holiday Showcase and once again in the springtime for an original concert. Each time the choirs have gone to competitions (most notably, OMEA contests), they have received a "I" (superior) rating.[citation needed] The two higher choirs at Jerome, the chamber group A Capella and the all-girl group Chorale, were invited to perform in New York's Carnegie Hall in April 2010.
