Cór Comáin [Roscommon Choir] was established in September 2017 by Roscommon native, Derek Mahady. The choir chose the name which pays tribute both to Roscommon’s patron saint and to their proud Roscommon origins. The primary objectives of the Choir are to perform choral music, provide quality music education and support local community and charitable organisations as part of the group’s concert series.
To date, the choir have helped to raise over €10,000 for charities including the Irish Motor Neurone Association and Western Alzheimers. In May 2018, Cór Comáin were awarded category winners in the First Time Competitors section of the Mayo International Choral Festival. As part of their programme of events for 2019, the choir will travel to London to perform alongside various London Choirs.
Rehearsals take place in Roscommon Town on Thursday evenings from 8pm to 9.30pm [Sept – June].
