Cantóirí is a vibrant, friendly and sociable mixed voice choir. Our musical director since 2006 is Ben Barnes.
We are currently unfortunately on a rehearsal and performance hiatus due to Covid-19, but are watching the situation closely and aim to return to weekly rehearsals as soon as safe and allowable. We normally rehearse on Monday nights term-time 7.15-9.30pm. There is a short audition for those interested in joining. Sight-reading is not a requirement. It's far more important that you enjoy singing in harmony and that you can hold a note. The choir mainly sings unaccompanied, short pieces. Our repertoire spans the centuries and styles, from Renaissance to modern and our particular specialty is folk music from around the world. For more information about joining the choir and/or to join our e-mail list to receive information when we restart, please contact Cantóirí by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org or through Twitter @cantoirichoir
