Membership and Information

Louth AOIC Members

Drogheda Boys’ Choir

In 2017, Drogheda Male Voice Choir decided to form a choir for boys, to be named Drogheda Boys’ Choir, and Sharon Gaynor (The Voice of Ireland) was appointed Musical Director.  The new choir has a membership of almost thirty boys, drawn from fifteen schools in the Drogheda area. Practices are held in the Holy Family Community Centre, Ballsgrove, Drogheda.

 

Drogheda has a strong tradition of male choral singing but, sadly, for over forty years the town had not had a boys’ choir. The purpose of the choir is to help boys become aware of, and develop, their singing potential, promote their self esteem and provide the foundation for lifetime participation in choral music. The aim is to provide the boys with first class voice/music training and performance experience that will lead to excellence in choral singing. As well as weekly singing practice we have begun a series of vocal training workshops delivered by Alan Leech, Chamber Choir Ireland

Setanta Choir

Setanta Choir is a mixed voice choir under the baton of Choir Director Una Murphy. The choir rehearses every Wednesday evening in The DKit, Dundalk from 7.00pm - 9.20pm.

The choir's repertoire covers a wide range of music; traditional, modern and classical. New members are always welcome. An ability to sight read is not a requirement but is an advantage.
