Note Perfect from Ballincollig was formed in 2001 under the musical direction of Rose Griffin and performs a repertoire of light jazz and pop numbers including well-known popular standards from the 40’s and 50’s together with pop songs from the 60’s and 70’s.
The group also has a large church music repertoire, performing at many weddings in the Cork area. It has performed at various musical events in Ireland and has travelled abroad to festivals like the Verona festival, Vienna Advent Festival, Nice Festival, Calella, Riva del Garda and the Costa Brava Music Festival. In 2017 it became an all Ladies Choir. Rehearsals take place each Thursday at Coláiste Choilm, Ballincollig, 7.45 - 9.30pm. New members are very welcome. While sight reading ability is helpful (but not necessary), harmonising, holding a tune and blending into the overall sound are the most important ingredients for this group.
One Town One Voice is a national initiative which helps build community singing groups in towns across Ireland with a special emphasis on community integration, diversity and respect.
Our singing groups bring together Irish people and those who have moved to towns from other countries in recent years. Together we use communal singing in a positive, secular, non-political and inclusive way, bringing people together regardless of nationality and building closer communities.
No auditions required. Just come on out and sing!

Sacred Harp is an American four-part harmony folk singing tradition characterised by haunting harmonies, traditional modes, raucous songs, serene hymns, fast fugues, and high-energy anthems.
The shape-note system uses squares, triangles, circles and diamonds corresponding to notes in the scale, making the music easy to sing for beginners and experienced alike.
Cork Sacred Harp have been singing since 2009. We do not have rehearsals, but simply sing for pure enjoyment. There is no conductor or director; anyone who wishes can choose and lead a song.
We sing in full natural voice, making it a great environment for beginners to build confidence in their voices. New singers of all levels of experience are always welcome. We sing every Thursday from 7-9pm in the Unitarian Church, Prince's St, often followed by a social beverage, and we host the largest Sacred Harp convention outside the USA, drawing over 200 singers annually.
