Mullingar Choral Society has become one of the town’s longest established cultural institutions. We are a community-based, non-profit-making choir and, with approximately 80 singers, is one of the largest in the country.
The Society represents a very positive aspect of Mullingar’s artistic energy and we pride ourselves on the consistently high standards of performance which we have achieved over the years. In 2019 we celebrated our Golden Jubilee with a celebration concert featuring both new works and highlights of fifty years of magical music-making.
New members are always welcome; we are a non-auditioned choir so joining us couldn’t be easier!
Harmania Indie choir based in Ireland was set up in October 2015 by music teacher and musician Róisín McGrath in order to highlight the benefits of group singing within her local community in Waterford . The choir is all inclusive, welcoming people from all walks of life. While their backgrounds may be diverse, they all share one distinct interest…..They Love to sing!
Emphasis is placed upon learning all aspects of performance and singing from breathing exercises, posture, vocalising, pitching, vocal projection, harmonies, movement, performance (group and individual), microphone usage and music theory.
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.
Cór Fingal was set up by former members of Enchriadis Chamber Choir and Fingal Choral programme in order to continue and develop the tradition of choral music initiated by Dr Marion Doherty in 1988. Now, the choir is conducted by Eoin Conway and has since won various awards at different Choral Festivals.
In 2018, the singers brought home no less than two gold awards from the Mayo Choral Festival. The choir regularly organises social events and puts a big emphasis on being part of a vibrant community of adult singers who want to challenge themselves musically.
In 2020, Cór Fingal is preparing for a Scandinavian concert tour.
