Three sold-out choir shows
VOICES of Bray community choir took to the Mermaid stage recently for three fantastic sellout concerts.
‘Many thanks to all who came out to support us and our nominated charities. It was a great few days,’ said a spokesperson for the choir.
Songs at the performances included the ever-popular ‘Let it Go’ from Frozen, Adele’s ‘Hello’, and ‘Pretty Woman’ by Roy Orbison.
The concert proceeds will be donated to Homelink as well as funding the purchase of a defibrillator for Sunbeam House Services.
The choir was established three years ago to encourage adults of all ages to get involved in singing. The choir welcomes all-comers, regardless of musical ability or experience. There are no auditions.
The repertoire of the choir is mainly popular music from the 1950s up to the present day.
The choir has become one of the largest in the country with more than 130 members.
While members don’t need to audition, or be able to read music or have any singing experience, they perform their songs to the absolute highest standard they can achieve. Most of the songs are arranged in to three or four parts for the singer. The atmosphere in the Mermaid for the concerts was uplifting, and a hugely enjoyable experience for audience and choir members alike.
