Are you recently retired? Retired a while but didn’t get a chance to join our choir yet? Do you love to sing? Would you like to make some new friends, have fun and exercise those lungs? Well, now is the time to get involved.
Our choir accepts new memebrs in September and January. They practice in the SMA Hall in Wilton on Mondays, from 11.20 to 12.50. The first meeting will be on Monday 4th September 2017.
The choir has a wide repertoire. They sing for us at RTAI gatherings, such as the AGM, summer meeting and Christmas lunch. They also perform at various local events, including charity concerts. They have performed at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh. Last May they travelled to San Marino for a choral festival!
The choir is a mixed voice choir, and all are welcome. For further information conatct Mary Fitzgerald 0868301195.
“I don’t sing because I’m happy,
I’m happy because I sing.”
Our choir have recently returned from a very successful and enjoyable trip to San Marino! Don’t they look swell in those summer outfits? A picture is worth a thousand words. Pictures can’t capture the beautiful music, but we know they did us proud!
