Preparing for the Winter Season

Lots to keep us rehearsing and performing in the next two months...

We are off to take part in the 22nd Sligo International Choral Festival on November 13th & 14th. We enjoyed our trip to Sligo in the past, and look forward to another good weekend of song. We sing in the festival competition as well as on the streets of Sligo, and at Mass.

In December we'll have our Christmas Concert on DEc 3rd (watch this space for details), and our seasonal carol singing in the Oncology ward of Cavan General Hospital, on the streets of Cavan, and at the Church of Ireland service.

Two great shows in Cavan Town Hall

Our two shows in Cavan Town Hall, celebrating our 25th Anniversary, wowed the audience each night. We sang choruses, duets and solos from Oklahoma, Andew Lloyd Webber, Les Miserables, West Side Story, My Fair Lady and Fiddler On The Roof. Our guests The Song Sisters did an Abba tribute, the boys from St Phelim's presented extracts from Oliver, and the girls from St Clare's did the same with Annie. Here's to the next 25 years of singing together!

Here is a report from local newspaper The Anglo Celt!

And so a new year begins again...

It's back to choir time, when all members search for their music and head for the Golf Club again. We'll have just a few rehearsals before the evenings close in, and then our weekly singing sessions will help brighten upthe winter months.

We are preparing for Concerts in October, so it will be down to business immediately on Tuesday September 8th...looking forward to it!

Another lovely evening at the Proms...

Once more we had a lovely evening at the Lions Club's Proms in the Farnham Radisson on June 18th. We sang a concert of songs from the musicals - and the audience seemed to enjoy it as much as we did! We had many soloists from within the choir for this concert, as well as guest soloist Kate Larkin, a budding young soprano from Longford. Also on the program were Cavan's Got Talent winner Maria Greenan, and The Jazz Preservation Society. Pictures to follow...
