New young voices project coming to Offaly this Easter

New young voices project coming to Offaly this Easter

A new and exciting project will be happening for Birr Young Voices during the Easter school holidays, leading to a performance during Birr Festival of Music across the May Bank Holiday weekend.

From Monday, April 15 until Thursday, April 18, there will be four fun-packed days of singing, music, rhythm and games, where you can meet new friends and old, and prepare for a great performance on Monday 6 May, as part of the music festival.

Once again, the amazing and dynamic Anne McCambridge, one of Ireland's leading choral directors, will lead this project with a team of musicians.

There is no cost for this project, apart from the €15 enrolment fee. What is required is a full commitment to the four days at Easter, and Monday, May 6, for rehearsal and performance.

The dates are as follows:

Monday, April 15 11am – 3pm Oxmantown School
Tuesday, April 16 10am – 3pm Oxmantown School
Wednesday, April 17 10am – 3pm Oxmantown School
Thursday, April 18 10am – 3pm Birr Theatre & Arts Centre
Monday, May 6 11am (Rehearsal) St. Brendan’s Church of Ireland
Monday, May 6 3pm (Performance) St. Brendan’s Church of Ireland

Enrolment forms are available at Birr Theatre & Arts Centre or can be downloaded at www.birrtheatre.com

Places are limited and will be allocated on a ‘first come’ basis.
