Hoping to start a small singing group locally.
Based in Waterford, South East Ireland, Voci is a female voice choir founded by Anne Barry and currently conducted by Fintan Scanlon. Since its establishment in 2005, the choir has been contributing to the musical life of the city, giving recitals and sharing concerts with other local groups. Voci has had competitive successes at Arklow and New Ross Choral Festivals. The choir's repertoire explores a range of music from early polyphony to arrangements of light music and also includes music by Irish composers. The choir recently sang at the St. Patrick's Day Mass for the Irish Community in Rome and also performed in The Pantheon and Teatro Don Bosco.
The Culwick Choral Society has been in existence for the past 120 years. It performs two concerts annually, a Spring concert involving one of the major choral works and a Christmas concert ,which, apart from the customary Christmas carols and excerpts from Handel's Messiah, normally includes a Christmas cantata.
For the last 7 years, under the title “Summer Songbook” weekend workshops are given in all facets of choral work. The aim is to bring lovers of music and song together and blend and share their talents. In the presence of amazing local very talented tutors Marie O’ Dwyer and Joanne Walsh, accompanied by the extraordinary Annabel Adams, we have succeeded in achieving this from once the 1st note is sung on Friday evening to the showcase concert of our achievements on Sunday evening. Our amazing tutors put their unique stamp on the musical content which is inspirational and a joy to sing and listen to. An extra dimension to the workshops is yoga teacher Helen Jeffers who will introduce relaxation and movement sessions during the weekend.
Continuum Youth Choir is a newly formed mixed youth choir which comprises girls who are or were members of St Mary’s Pro-Cathedral Girls’ choir and boys who are or were members of the Palestrina Choir in the Pro-Cathedral in Dublin. This new choir is not church based and is a competition and concert choir directed by Blanaid Murphy. Blanaid is a very well known and respected choral director and she is aiming for the very highest excellence in choral music. Participating in a choir is all about teamwork and Blanaid is keen to develop the choir as a team and develop each of the teenagers so that they reach their maximum singing potential. Consequently the Continuum Youth Choir has been set up to retain these very accomplished teenagers as a group. Continuum have already performed in St Anne’s Church, Dublin in December 2018 and City Hall Dublin in March 2019.
