The purpose of this website is to provide an outline and photos of the history of the choir, photos and video from trips to Luton and Hoechstadt and outline of plans for the immediate and longer term future.
Since the choir was established in 2000 it has grown from strength to strength and now has a total of 50+ men who travel from all parts of Mayo to rehearse and perform together. The choir has been under the direction of the very accomplished and talented Ms. Deirdre Lee since it’s inception. Deirdre is a music teacher at St. Joseph’s Secondary School so her expertise and experience are invaluable to the choir.
MMVC needs you – if you think you may be interested in joining the choir, now is the time!
The Mayo Male Voice Choir is currently seeking new talent to join its ranks and participate in its many popular performances throughout the year. In particular we would love to hear from any 1st Tenors. The choir, which has members from all over Mayo, provides a wonderful showcase for some of the finest male singers in the county as well as offering a rewarding social outlet to members.
The choir was formed some years ago and to date has more than 50 members. The group has performed to wide acclaim in numerous venues, including The Royal Theatre in Castlebar where it staged its 10th anniversary celebrations. Under the directorship of Deirdre Lee the choir continues to go from strength to strength and plans are currently under way for a performance in the National Concert Hall later this year.
Present members of the choir hail from numerous Mayo areas including Castlebar, Ballinrobe, Swinford, Foxford, Belcarra and Crimlin.
New members are now being sought from throughout the county and all are welcome.
If you have any interest in joining the choir attend GMIT on Thursdays from September to April, or speak to any choir member, or use the contact information below.
