Choirs and Music in Taney
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.
Our Junior Choir members have been busy this term and are enjoying learning lots of new songs to share with everyone at our Family Services. There have been many beautiful babies baptised and choir members particularly enjoy singing the special baptismal blessing for each and every one of them. We have had lots of fun singing uplifting Gospel songs and even added in a few Gospel moves on occasion! Our rehearsals on Sunday mornings in the Overend Room are absolutely full of energy and thoroughly enjoyable for everyone involved. Rev’d Nigel often stops for a listen to the gorgeous sounds as he prepares for Sunday Service! New members are always welcome so please come along to a rehearsal if you would like to be part of the Junior Choir.
PRAM JAM SINGERS
Pram Jam Singers is a new choir for mums, mums- to- be, dads, grandparents and minders alike. A unique choir for grown ups, where baby and toddler are welcome too! It’s time for carers to feel the benefits of singing as part of a group and enjoy some well deserved me - time! Pram Jam Singers will to help parents and minders to recharge and connect with others in a fun, relaxed space. They can sing their heart out while baby plays, feeds, sleeps or even joins in!
Parenthood can be hectic; new mums and dads can become overwhelmed or isolated with the demands of ‘round the clock’ care. Singing as part of a group can help improve mood, decrease stress, depression and anxiety! No experience is necessary for this group, just bring your baby and a desire to sing new music and make some new friends!
Pram Jam Singers is run by Maura Flynn and Tracy O’ Donnell. Both mums with many years experience as musicians and teachers. As graduates of the Cork school of Music they have been involved in many successful musical projects and hope PJS will allow mums and dads to feel energised and uplifted from the experience of singing together.
Every Friday, Taney Parish Centre, Main Hall, 10am.
