Handel’s Hallelujah chorus and Mozart’s Missa Brevis in Bflat are just some of the choral treats that will be heard in Galway city this weekend.
The Galway Choral Association’s annual Christmas concert takes place in St Nicholas’ Collegiate Church on Saturday at 8pm. As well as Handel and Mozart, there will also be music from Elgar and Rutter.
The concert will feature soloists Sandra Murphy, Tracy Bruen, Matthew Harrison, and John Kennedy. The choir will be accompanied by Galway born organist and former Westminster Cathedral organ scholar David Grealy.
The concert will raise funds for COPE. Fintan Maher, COPE Galway director of communications said: “I want to thank the Galway Choral Association as, without such fantastic support from groups like these and the people of Galway, we would not be able to continue our work with the most isolated in our community.”
Tickets are €15/10 are available from choir members, Opus II in the Cornstore, COPE Galway, or at the door. See also www.facebook.com/GalwayChoralAssociation
