Heavenly sounds at Bray Choral Society concert
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.
