What's new for 2019 with Millicent Singers
It’s a new year and a new season for Millicent Singers. In December, our choir brought some festive cheer to an appreciative audience at our sold-out annual Christmas concert at Clongowes Wood College. After a well-earned break, the group are refreshed and we are looking forward to a busy spring term.
Hitting the ground running, our musical director Alan Kelly will kick off the new season with a full-day workshop in January, where our members will start work on new music and develop their vocal and performance technique.
In March, Millicent Singers will host our Annual Table Quiz in Millicent Golf Club. After 2018’s Storm Emma forced the quiz to be rescheduled, we are hoping that this year’s later date of Friday 22nd March will avoid snowfall! Always a fantastic night full of trivia, laughs and the ever-popular bumper raffle, Millicent Singers hope to welcome another big crowd this year. The quiz will kick off at 8pm, costing €40 per team of four.
Closer to summer, the choir will continue preparations for our first performance at the Feis Ceoil in the RDS in April, before heading to ‘The Royal County’ to compete in the Navan Choral Festival in May.
Millicent Singers’ exciting season culminates in our Summer Concert which will take place in Clane Church on Sunday 26th May. This year we will be joined by special guests from the United States: The Lenoir-Rhyne University A Capella Choir. Coming all the way from Hickory, North Carolina, the group is known for their amazing diversity and pristine tuning. The concert promises to be a rare musical treat and we hope that the people of Kildare will join us in giving our guests a very warm welcome.
Speaking about the 2019 season, Alan Kelly says “It’s an exciting year ahead for Millicent Singers, in addition to our competitions and concerts we also plan to lay down tracks for our first ever CD. With Feis Ceoil and Navan festivals before the summer we also can look forward to the City of Derry International Choir Festival in October.”
