Voices of Bray Community Choir

Location:
Bray, Co. Wicklow
Conductor:
John Ivory

Voices of Bray Community Choir was founded in 2013. It is an SATB choir, welcoming singers of all abilities on a no-audition basis. Originally envisioned to attract 50-60 members, demand was so high that within a year, membership had expanded to its current size of 130 singers.

The choir focuses on a repertoire of popular music with a firm emphasis on singing for fun. The choir also aims to foster a community spirit and social interaction among members and to promote well-being through the enjoyment of singing.

Rehearsals take place on a weekly basis with full concert performances several times each year. In 2017, the choir made its first overseas trip, taking part in the North Wales Choral Festival. Apart from the entertainment factor, concert performances are undertaken as fundraising events. To the end of 2018 the choir has raised €50,000 for various charities.

The choir has already performed with some of the finest musicians & singers in Ireland as well as with the 2012 Irish Choir of the Year, the Tullamore Academy Chamber Choir.

West Wicklow Voices (WWV) were delighted to have been chosen to perform with two of the finest Irish singers working in Europe at the moment. Their concert in the Freemasons Hall, Molesworth St., Dublin was a wonderful evening of music with Majella Cullagh & Victoria Massey.

In 2016 WWV performed with an eclectic array of singers and musicians, ranging from James Nelson of the Celtic Tenors to contemporary ‘Prog Rock’ group, Megacone.

WWV were privileged to take part in Wicklow Arts’ official 1916 commemorative event, ‘Mary Gordon’ in the NCH, Dublin. WWV finished off the year in style with two performances in Rome with multi-million selling Irish singer and recording artist, Méav followed by their annual Christmas concert in St. Joseph’s, Baltinglass in aid of the Lions Club Christmas Appeal.

In 2017 WWV one of the highlights was a concert with The Celtic Tenors in Russborough House, Co. Wicklow on June 17.

WWV have given a number of overseas concerts including in Sant’Agnese fuori le Mura and the Irish College in Rome in 2017 and at the Costa Barcelona Music Festival in Calella in 2018.

2019 will see WWV putting on a series of concerts entitled the French Connection and also doing a series of joint concerts in Wicklow & Bristol with Sam Burns and Gurt Lush Choir.
