What to expect: NO AUDITIONS! Fun!

You can expect a stimulated and fun learning environment with keen focus on a solid breathing and vocal technique. We’ll be developing a new repertoire to cater for all tastes and we’ll be preparing for future performances maybe as soon as Christmas 2014 depending on how we progress! All this choir needs is some commitment and an openness to share and develop and it will flourish.

Singing for many people is an outlet for joy, stress relief and communication. These sessions will encourage all these aspects through warm ups, workshops and time with visiting instructors who can help to open our minds to so many possibilities. It’s going to be a great adventure for everyone so leave you’re cares at the door and come and sing your heart out!

Our Team is:

Director/Musical Director: Owen Gilhooly – Baritone
Assistant Musical Director: Helen Houlihan – Soprano
Accompanist: Irina Dernova – Piano
Conductor in Training: Kerry Jane Hurley – Soprano
