Choral so­ci­ety evening

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

BRAY CHORAL SO­CI­ETY is hold­ing an open evening in the Martello on Tues­day, Au­gust 20, from 7.30 p.m. to 9.30 p.m.

Vis­i­tors can call in to find out more and talk to mem­bers about their ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing a mem­ber of the choir. No singing is re­quired on the night. The choir is open to any­one over 18.

They re­hearse each Tues­day evening at St Kil­ian’s, dur­ing school term time.

They sing a wide va­ri­ety of choral works, from clas­si­cal to con­tem­po­rary. In Fe­bru­ary 2019, BCS per­formed the Ir­ish pre­mière of Howard Goodall’s ‘In­vic­tus A Pas­sion’ in both Dublin and Bray, and th­ese choir mem­bers have been in­vited to per­form the work again in New York’s Carnegie Hall in 2020.

The so­ci­ety per­forms at least two con­certs a year, Christ­mas and early sum­mer, and holds var­i­ous so­cial evenings and events. We like to travel also, and most re­cently mem­bers par­tic­i­pated in the Prague Sum­mer Choral Meet­ing in early Au­gust.

Read­ing mu­sic is not es­sen­tial, as learn­ing tracks are pro­vided to use along­side the score.
