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.
Under the direction of Ms Helen Doyle, the Junior Choir have been very busy since the start of the year. We were delighted to have new members join us at our rehearsals and to lead the worship in Family Services. New members are always welcome throughout the year so please do come along to a rehearsal to give choir a try! Just contact the Parish Office on 01 298 5491. The Junior Choir and Senior Choir joined forces once again this year in their inter-generational musical celebration of Harvest and there really is nothing better than the wonderfully descriptive and beautiful Harvest Anthem, ‘Look at the World’. We have also enjoyed some fabulous Gospel music, lovely Baptism Blessings and are looking forward to lots of Christmas favourites at the Parish Bazaar! Rehearsals are usually noisy and fun but always filled with beautiful singing and very hard work by the wonderful young choristers who make up the Taney Junior Choir. Well done to them all on producing such moving and high quality performances!
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.
