Sing with the award-winning Cuore!

Published 28 August 2023

Do you love singing challenging but rewarding music in a friendly but committed environment with a wide range of ages and nationalities? Apply now to join the award-winning Cuore Chamber Choir at http://cuore.ie/join . Limited vacancies on all voice parts, but low basses and low altos are particularly welcome. We are an internationally award-winning amateur Irish mixed-voice chamber choir. Our repertoire ranges from standard works to Tudor editions prepared by choir members and premieres of contemporary compositions written for the choir. Since our foundation in 2014 by our professional conductor, Amy Ryan, we have won first prizes at most of the major festivals in Ireland. We rehearse on Thursday evenings in a well-ventilated venue in Adelaide Rd., Dublin 2. A typical choir year includes weekly rehearsals from September to early June, one or two weekend rehearsals a term, three or more concerts a year, informal performances at Christmas, regular social events, and a trip to a competition or festival in Ireland or abroad. If you are interested in fulfilling your choral ambitions, we would love to hear from you.

Singing opportunities at St Mary’s Cathedral, Limerick

Singing opportunities at St Mary’s Cathedral, Limerick

Published 27 July 2023

Singing opportunities at St Mary’s Cathedral, Limerick Choral scholarships (both undergraduate and postgraduate) We have space for up to three choral scholars for the next academic year (i.e. from September 1 st 2023) to join St Mary’s Cathedral Choir. The choir sings for the morning service each Sunday at 11.15am, and rehearses before the service at 10.15am as well as on Friday evenings (5.30pm to 7.15pm). There are also extra services and events once or twice a month, such as carol services, occasional concerts etc. Undergraduate choral scholars receive a bursary of 800 euro per year, and postgraduate 1,000 euro per year, assuming good attendance throughout the year. Stipendiary singers We also have places for up to three stipendiary singers (soprano, alto and bass). These singers are each paid 25 euro per service and 20 euro per rehearsal, and in many respects fulfill the role of line leader for their section. A good level of sight- reading and musicianship would therefore be required in addition to a pleasant and confident singing voice. Chorister tutor We have an upcoming vacancy, from mid-September 2023, for a chorister tutor at the cathedral. The chorister tutor assists the choirmaster in giving individual lessons to the teenage choristers in the choir (predominantly of secondary school age), and also in providing support with the junior choir (national school age children). Ideally this role would be held by the soprano (or alto) stipendiary singer (see above). The tutor is paid 40 euro per Friday afternoon session, 3.45pm to 5.15pm. For more information or to arrange a meeting with the Choirmaster and Organist, please email Peter Barley at organist@limerick.anglican.org
