Han­del’s Mes­siah per­formed by choral so­ci­ety

Bray People - - NEWS -

A very spe­cial con­cert took place last Satur­day evening at the Holy Redeemer church on Bray Main Street.

It was the Christ­mas con­cert of Bray Choral so­ci­ety with a beau­ti­ful per­for­mance of Han­del’s Mes­siah.

Chair of the group Janet Swaine spoke to the au­di­ence about the piece be­fore the start of the per­for­mance. Mu­si­cal Di­rec­tor Frank Kelly then wel­comed the soloists onto the plat­form for the con­cert to be­gin. Or­gan­ist David Leigh pro­vided the ac­com­pa­ni­ment on the evening.

Soloists on the night were tenor Eoin Hynes, so­prano Clodagh Kin­sella, coun­tertenor Kevin O’Sul­li­van and bass Peter Man­ning.

Au­di­ence mem­bers de­scribed the mu­sic on the night at ‘in­cred­i­bly beau­ti­ful.’

The choir re­hearses on Tues­day evenings at St Kil­ian’s Com­mu­nity School on School’s Road off the Boghall at 7.45 p.m. Peo­ple of all mu­si­cal abil­i­ties are wel­come to join.

The choral so­ci­ety cur­rently boasts around 100 ac­tive mem­bers. Some of those have been there since the very be­gin­ning while oth­ers are rel­a­tively new to the choir.
