GALWAY SIMON Community has been selected as the chosen charity for two concerts to take place during St Patrick’s Weekend.
The concerts will take place in St Nicholas’ Collegiate Church. The first takes place on Saturday at 8pm with the Laramie and Kelly Walsh Choirs from Wyoming. The choirs are made up of 90 singers from the western US and perform popular classics, spirituals, pop, and Irish and American folk songs. The choirs will also be accompanied by a bluegrass band.
The Claire Women’s Concert Choral will perform on Monday at 8pm. The choir is part of the University of Wisconsin Eau and is recognised as one of the premier choral ensembles in the USA. They specialise in the performance of music written specifically for female voices.
Both concerts are free admission but donations to Simon will be accepted.
