The music programme is run by David Adams, the Director of Music. Both Churches have their own choirs and sing on Sundays at the main services. Throughout the year members of the Choir sing in St Patrick's Cathedral and perform at events in Taney and in the neighbouring districts. The Christ Church Choir has weekly practices during term time.
The Junior Choir resumed its busy routine in September after the summer break, and Tuesday practices continue to be very spirited and lively sessions!
The season started in fine style as we quickly found ourselves back in the routine of monthly Family Services. The Harvest Family Gift Service in October was a real highlight and the choir produced some wonderful singing.
We are now speeding towards the Christmas season - always a highlight for the Junior Choir. This year, as ever, the children are looking forward to the Family Gift service on 10th December. We will also be making our annual visit to St Ann’s Church on Dawson Street on 19th December, to sing carols for the Black Santa appeal.
The choir has been somewhat depleted this term by the departure of a large group of older members, and we are always looking for new members who will commit themselves to regular practices and to Sunday services. All children are welcome, although the choir is best suited to those aged seven and older (from 2nd class). Choir practice is at 2.30pm on Tuesday afternoons in the Parish Centre. Please contact Suzanne Chadwick on 087 757 4156 for more information.
TANEY OCCASIONAL CHORUS
The Occasional Chorus welcomes all who love to sing and enjoy the camaraderie of ensemble singing, but perhaps feel reluctant to make a regular commitment to the Parish Choir. Look out for notices in the Church bulletins and in Taney News Extra emails, or contact Gayle Baird (087 752 4536) or Suzanne Chadwick (087 757 4156) for more information.
