Another year over

Well, our second season came to a close last night with our final practice, and while some members are looking forward to the summer break, I know a few others went home wondering what they’ll do with themselves for the next 13 Tuesday evenings until we resume on September 3rd. 🙂

We had a short rehearsal last evening, followed by a review of the 2012/2013 season.  While we didn’t have as many performances as we had hoped, we are all delighted with the progress we’ve made musically, and our repertoire has grown substantially during the season.  We also looked ahead to 2013/2014 season, and are excited and looking forward to a busy season which will include participating in some competitions which will be another new step for us.

We have one (little) event left to bring our season to a close.  Our Summer Barbecue is on June 7th and we’re all looking forward to that.

Finally, if you want to check out our singing, we’ve posted a couple of videos on Youtube, and you can see them at http://www.youtube.com/user/BaronyChoir

We are on the lookout for new members, so if you want to join a friendly choir that’s going places, contact us on baronychoir@gmail.com

Well, we had a great outing to the Atrium in the Clarion Hotel in Cork city yesterday.

We did five songs:

  • Fly me to the moon
  • You’ve got a friend
  • Here comes the Sun
  • Close to you
  • Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho
We had planned to finish with Fix You, the Coldplay classic, but unfortunately we couldn’t fit all the songs into the available slot.

The ‘Afternoons at the Atrium’ events were organised by Cork International Choral Festival, and we are delighted to have been involved with event which had choirs from Russia, Poland, Belarus and Ireland participating.

We’re approaching the end of our season now, we’ve had great fun, and enjoyed learning a great variety of material.

We’re already looking forward to our third season starting in September 2013.

We are delighted to announce that we will be singing in the Clarion Hotel in Cork City on Sunday May 5th as part of  ‘Afternoons in the Atrium’ one of the many events being organised as part of the Cork International Choral Festival.

We will perform five or six songs, a mix of contemporary, popular and gospel numbers.

We’re scheduled to begin at about 4.30pm, so why not come along and have a listen?
