In The Mood

On 1 December, the West Cork Choral Singers will perform a very special evening of music at their beloved Abbeystrewry Church in Skibbereen.

The evening will signal the end of an era for the choir, as Diana Llewellyn – the choir’s musical director since 1998 – will take her final bow.

Diana took charge of a fledgling choir twenty-one years ago and guided it to unimagined heights, including several notable ‘firsts’, an Irish premiére for The Armed Man in Schull in November 2008 plus partaking in the world premiére of Sing the Music is Given in Carnegie Hall, New York, in January 2018.

So, while this may be an evening of a little nostalgia, it will also be an evening of diverse and fun-filled music, an early invitation to get into the mood for the upcoming festive season.

Need we say more!

For anyone new a map to the practice hall can be found here. Apparently the much maligned postcode works now in Google Maps – P81 T880 – should get you there, too.

Encore

On Sunday 2 April the West Cork Choral Singers make a welcome return to Abbeystrewry Church to perform works by, among others, Johannes Brahms, Antonin Dvořák and Karl Jenkins.

Justin Grounds, locally-based violinist and composer will be a guest soloist on the night.
