On Thursday April 27th the Mayo Male Voice Choir will perform its Springtime concert in Ballintubber Abbey at 8.00 pm sharp. Comprising men from parishes throughout the county the choir has for a number of years provided audiences with a rich and varied selection of melodies that reflect different musical traditions and genres.
The occasion will be a celebration of all that is good in four-part choral music. Popular songs like The Fields of Athenry and The Star of the County Down offer sharp contrast to music from the world of Light Entertainment and Light Opera. Well known ballads like The Parting Glass and Working Man are given a richer context by the four part choir. These are small samples of the wider repertoire that Mayo Male Voice choir will perform on the night.
Since commencing practice last September members have met weekly under the watchful eye of their Musical Director Deirdre Lee. With Deirdre it’s a case of keeping it in the family and perpetuating a tradition as she continues to emulate the sterling work that her father George provided for many years. She has been a source of great encouragement to everyone involved.
This concert in a magnificent setting is well worth supporting. Your presence and support would be warmly welcomed at an event that is certain to provide top class entertainment and will surely satisfy lovers of good music.
