Our Spring Concert this year was held in the GMIT in Castlebar on the 20th April. Our guest artists this year were Rory Musgrave (Baritone), Mairéad Buicke (Soprano) and Sarah Lyons (Violin).
Originally we engaged Sinéad Campbell-Wallace as Soprano but due to unforeseen circumstances she was unable to attend and we are mot grateful to Mairéad Buicke for stepping in and filling the gap.
The video below (about 20 mins) is a brief synopsis of the concert.
The Mayo Male Voice Choir workshop, which seems to be becoming an annual event, was held this year on the 14th April at the Mayo County Council Training Centre in Castlebar. As last year we were treated to another fantastic workshop under the direction and tutelage of Veronica McCarron of Britain’s Got Talent fame. Born in Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh, Veronica is a BMus, Dip Mus Ed Graduate of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music in Glasgow and University of Perth, Western Australia. She has been teaching for 43 years during which time she has taught in Scotland, Australia, the United States and most recently at the Presentation Secondary School in Kilkenny, Ireland. She has now retired but still travels from Donegal to tutor the school choir.
The Mayo Male Voice Choir are pleased to announce that the Spring Concert 2018 will take place at 8pm on the evening of the 20th April at the GMIT Mayo Campus in Castlebar.
It was with great regret and sadness that we learnt of the passing of our good friend and fellow choir member Michael Walshe on Sunday last, 9th December. His remains were brought to Kilmeena Church on Tues Dec 11th at 6.30 where the choir were delighted to have the opportunity to form a guard of honour for our friend. Deirdre played the church organ as our choir sang Adoramus Te, The Lord is My Shepherd and A Mhuire Mháthair in his memory. He will be sadly missed by all of the members of Mayo Male Voice Choir, a choir Michael participated in fully, even battling ongoing pain in order to attend our practices and performances.
May he rest in peace.
