Christmas Festival with Mullingar Choral Society this Sunday evening
Mullingar Choral Society present their Annual Christmas Concert on Sunday evening next, December 1, in the Cathedral of Christ the King. For many people who reside in Mullingar and for many more form the surrounding areas the ‘Choral’ Christmas concert is seen as one of the definitive signs that the Christmas Season is upon us.
As is customary, members will be joined by their good friends from Mullingar Town Band, who bring such a wonderfully distinctive sound to the concert. The Cathedral as a venue gives the audience an opportunity to appreciate the fullness of the sound the Town Band have to offer combined with the 70 voices of the Mullingar Choral Society Choir.
Soloist Helen Hassett needs no introduction to Mullingar audiences as she has performed on many occasions locally and the members of Mullingar Choral Society are delighted to welcome Helen back to sing with them again.
In addition this year, the society are joined by the choir of St Mary’s Primary School, and they are sure that the 48 voices of the members of this children’s choir will add so much to this year’s event.
The band and the choirs will be under the baton of Fergus O’Carroll, who with the assistance of Fintan Farrelly (piano accompanist), will endeavour to provide the ever loyal audience with a wonderful evening of uplifting seasonal music.
Tickets are available in the Cathedral Shop, from any member of the Choral Society and at the door on the evening of the concert – which starts 7pm on Sunday, December 1.
