With just a week to go, I think we’re all set for our very first official meeting of The Barony Choir.   At the moment, we have twenty six signed-up members, stretching from Cork City in the west to Killeagh in the east, so we’re truly an East Cork choir!!  Initially we set a goal of 20 members and then stretched it to 30, so we’re absolutely delighted with the current number, and who knows, we still have a week!!

We had a planning meeting with Carolyn during the week, and she’s finalising the first pieces for the repertoire.  We’re really excited with the initial selection of  pieces, and we’re sure our members will be too.

The initial meeting on September 6th will be held in the CBS secondary school in Midleton, and practices will also take place there starting on September 20th.  The initial meeting will be a ‘getting to know you’ session, so everyone gets to know everyone.  The social and fun aspect of the choir is vital, so we’re intent that everyone gets to know everyone.  We’ll also discuss our hopes and plans, and might even do a little singing.

Speaking of the social and fun aspect, we had a session in Castlemartyr last night, and we had mighty craic, but we’re hoping that after we get up and running that we’ll encourage more members to join us at the sessions which will be held at various hostelries around East Cork.

That’s it for the moment, we’ll be texting members in the next few days with the start time for the meeting on Tuesday the 6th, and we’re really looking forward to meeting all our members and making new friends through music.
