Mayo Cancer Support present a wonderful evening of music

A wonderful evening of chamber and choral music will take place in the Downhill Hotel on Friday, May 7. Taking part in this evening of music will be the Westminster College Chamber Singers from Salt Lake City, Utah, under the direction of Dr Christopher Quinn, and Cór Mhaigh Eo under the direction of Dr Brian Lennon.

The Chamber Singers are Westminster's elite, touring choir. Since they were organised in 1996, their combination of youthful exuberance and artistically advanced performance of sacred and secular music has been in demand at a variety of venues around the globe. Cór Mhaigh Eo, formerly known as Mayo County Choir, was established in 1994, drawing on members from all over the county. The choir concentrated on non-competitive performances of mainly sacred works in the early years. In 2004, former bass Brian Lennon took over as conductor, leading to a change of direction for the choir with a wide repertoire ranging from 15th century choral music to contemporary choral and secular works.

This special event, where all the proceeds will go to Mayo Cancer Support, will take place in the Downhill Hotel, Ballina on Friday May 7. Tickets cost €10 for adults and €5 for students and can be purchased on the door. For more information contact Mayo Cancer Support on 094 9038407 or the Downhill Hotel on 096 21033.
