We are currently up to fever pitch preparing for a very special evening in October. Two celebrations in one, so to speak.
Cavan County Council is holding a Civic Reception in our honour, to mark our 30 years singing in the community. We are very proud to accept this invitation, and will perform in the Council Chamber in the Courthouse to mark the occasion. We will sing Cantar and Cavan Girl, directed (in his maiden flight with us!) by Paul Flynn and accompanied by Eileen Tackney.
The Johnston Central Library hosting an exhibition to celebrate the first 30 years of Cavan Singers.
We are preparing and exhibition of photographs, programs, recordings, musical scores and artefacts to celebrate our 30th Birthday - see a selection below. The exhibition is to be opened on Thursday October 2nd by our Minister for Arts, Heritage & the Gaeltacht, Heather Humpheys. We will sing some popular numbers - Viva La Vida and Java Jive - once again with Paul and Eileen Tackney. We look forward to meeting our Musical Directors of the past, and especially to a reunion of some of our founder members.
The Committee is grateful for all the help and support it has received to help our preparations to date - Adult Education Office CMETB, Library and Arts Office staff, Cavan County Council Executive Office Staff, Cavan County Museum, Loreto College Cavan, Abbeyset, Mel’s Signs, Blacks Printers, Lorraine Teevan Photography, Anglo Celt, Joe Keenan, Elena Brennan Design, Dollé Cullivan, and Dermot McMonagle.
