Bray Choral Society and Wicklow Choral Society, both directed by Frank Kelly, will both perform at the concert at Shoreline Leisure Centre.
Individual singers are invited to join in Beethoven’s Symphony No 9 (Choral.)
Beethoven’s Choral Symphony is one of the most uplifting works of the entire orchestral and choral repertoire. The famous Ode to Joy in the final movement is a triumph of joy and optimism. The symphony is a very large undertaking and, as such, is rarely performed. It requires a symphony orchestra of about 70 players, a large choir and four top vocal soloists. This project is on a unique scale and promises to be a memorable performance.
Singers wishing to take part in this project will be expected to attend up to six rehearsals in either Wicklow or Bray over the course of the coming months and to prepare in between with the aid of a rehearsal CD.
This project is supported by The Arts Council and Wicklow County Arts Office and produced by Wide Open Music – led by conductor Fergus Sheil. To register interest contact Ann Catherine Nolan on (087) 972 3059 or firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating your voice type (soprano, alto, tenor, bass.)
