Kenmare Chamber Choir 

The Kenmare (formerly Neidín) Chamber Choir is a small, friendly community choir that has its origins in a group of six people who got together in March 2008 to sing unaccompanied four-part songs.  Since then it has nearly tripled in size.  It has members from several different nationalities and a wide range of musical backgrounds: there is no audition and it is not a requirement to read music (several members don't). It meets once a week on Tuesdays between September and June and has given a number of concerts in various locations in and around Kenmare. In 2013 it won a discretionary award at the second Kenmare Choral Festival.  Its repertoire, in the classical idiom, ranges from early 16th century to the present day. The choir welcomes new singers, especially altos and tenors. Its main aims are to achieve a good and satisfying standard of music-making and to have fun. 

Location: Gateway building, Kenmare
