Tis The Season! Ireland's Virtual Christmas Choir
Sing Ireland hopes that you are all keeping well and staying safe. As choirs and singing groups all around the country have suspended rehearsals and we are heading into the festive season, we are sure that you are all missing group singing and meeting your friends. To celebrate the active and resilient group singing sector in Ireland, we would like to invite you to join together in a festive 'virtual choir' project. The piece we will record is 'Deck The Hall' arranged by Mark Armstrong. This project is a partnership between Sing Ireland and Cailíno Music Publishers. Sing Ireland is sponsoring participation for choirs and singing groups. A virtual choir performance of the piece will be compiled before Christmas.
You are asked to make a video of yourself performing the piece. The piece has been arranged for SAATB choir and voice parts for the piece may be downloaded after you register. Fantastic resources and recordings are available that will make taking part extremely easy. Everything you need is looked after and so there is no extra ‘virtual’ work involved for your conductor or musical director. You will need two devices - one to open the backing track which you will sing along to and one to record your performance.
You can register as a group or as an individual.
After registration, you will be emailed a link to download a pack that contains the score, line videos, and instructions.
Videos must be submitted as per instructions you will receive.
NOTE: The deadline for submissions extended until Sunday 13th December.
