Carlow Voices

 

Carlow Voices was established in 2002. It is a mixed SATB community-based choir in the Carlow area, created to provide an opportunity for singers to enjoy a challenging and rewarding musical experience.

 

This choir aims to provide a wide repertoire of choral music and prides itself on the quality and diversity of the music it performs with a repertoire which ranges from Classic to Contemporary, Secular & Religious, World & Irish music.

 

The past two years have seen the choir come 1st place in two competitions in National & International Choral Festivals.

In January 2017 the choir was delighted to announce the appointment of reknowned muscial director Mary Amond O’Brien. The choir has seen a marked increase in the standard and ambition in the work produced since her arrival. To add to this Carlow Voices has grown to 50 members at present. 

The Vision of Carlow voices is that singing enriches those who sing and those who Listen.

It is their mission that Carlow Voices aim to enrich its members through the enjoyable act of singing together with an individual commitment to be the best that they can be.

The choir rehearse every Tuesday 8-10pm in Scoil Muire, Carlow Town.

New members are taken at the choirs discretion and are encouraged to have the ability to sight read music.
