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.
What a busy time it has been for the Junior Choir! January rehearsals were dark and chilly but very enjoyable for all involved and there was lots of new music to learn in preparation for our TV appearance on RTE in March. It was wonderful to once again join forces with the Senior Choir for psalms, canticles and anthems, as well as hymns and a couple of solo spots for the Junior Choir. You couldn’t miss them on TV - they were sounding great and looking magnificent in their special
bright yellow Taney Junior Choir T-shirts! The choir were also delighted to sing a special Spanish blessing for Rev’d Cathy’s final service and the very beautiful Amazing Grace at the first Family Service of 2019 too. New members are always welcome, so please come along to rehearsal if you would like to be part of the Junior Choir.
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.
