Heav­enly sounds at Bray Choral So­ci­ety con­cert

Bray People - - News -

THE air was filled with the beau­ti­ful sound of mu­sic last Satur­day night as the Bray Choral So­ci­ety held their an­nual Christ­mas con­cert.

Over 100 mem­bers of the so­ci­ety filled the al­ter at the Holy Redeemer Church, per­form­ing an out­stand­ing ar­ray of favourite pieces and Christ­mas favourites.

Chair­per­son of the Choral So­ci­ety, Ann Mur­diff, wel­comed the huge crowd to the church in both As Gaeilge and English and then kicked off the con­cert by wel­com­ing the mem­bers to the al­ter.

The so­ci­ety were ac­com­pa­nied by Cor­muin O’Raghail­ligh who played the pi­ano and the or­gan.

The au­di­ence were also treated to a per­for­mance on the night by three tal­ented soloists.

Anna Forsyth, Mar­garet Brady and Aoife O’Con­nell, who per­formed a hu­mor­ous piece called ‘The 12 days af­ter Christ­mas’, took the au­di­ence by storm and were met with a huge round of ap­plause.

Founder of the Choral So­ci­ety, Frank Kelly who also founded the Bray Youth Choir, in­tro­duced the Youth Choir to the al­ter, who then made an amaz­ing per­for­mance of some lighter mu­sic.

But the most mem­o­rable per­for­mance of the evening had to be from 10year-old John Kelly, who held the au­di­ence cap­tive as he sang the Christ­mas favourite, ‘Walk­ing in the air.’

The ex­cep­tional voices of the Choral So­ci­ety cre­ated an amaz­ing evening of mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment for their au­di­ence.

A great night was had by all.
