While most of our performances are low key affairs, and fundraisers for local charities, occasionally we have the opportunity to perform on a bigger stage. Below are some of our past highlights
On the 1st July 2018, the choir were honoured to be asked to entertain the guests at the wedding of Ann Noelle’s daughter Niamh to Iowa native Ryan Lewis. In beautiful sunshine the choir, conducted by Ann Noelle herself, and accompanied as always by Carmel, preformed a selection of some of our favourite numbers on the balcony area of the stunning Cabra Castle Hotel. The happy couple who are based in Washington DC, really appreciated the choir’s contributions to their special day
We travelled to Bangor to take part in their International Choral Festival, which took place in St Comgall’s Parish Centre. We stayed overnight in the Park Avenue Hotel, Belfast, and a very enjoyable evening was spent serenading the locals in the hotel bar.
We were delighted to play our part in the community project by Cavan Institute in this charity single. It was written by Daire O’Reilly and recorded by the Music Production students in Cavan Institute. The single was launched on Friday the 13th of April in the Farnham Arms hotel in Cavan town. All proceeds of the night and the sale of the CD are donated to C.A.P.S. (Cavan Autism Parents Support) as part of autism awareness month.
