The Orpheus Choir together with the Munster Youth Singers



On the 18th. November, 2017 at 8pm in The Mall Arts Centre in Youghal The Orpheus Choir will perform its first concert of the season, a Fund-raiser to support the Youghal RNLI and Youghal Community Bus. 


The Choir and its Musical Director Hilary Reynolds are delighted to be returning to Youghal - their first visit in 2011 was to the Mary Collegiate Church, but this time the concert will be held in the Arts Centre, which is also the Town Hall, situated right next door to the Lifeboat Station. 
The Lifeboat is a service as essential to Youghal as any Fire Brigade is to inland towns - a great cause for which to raise funds with this evening's entertainment. For those who do not go out in boats, but are in urgent need of affordable transport to be able to venture out at all in this most rural of areas, a community bus is also of an immense value and thus another very worthy cause.


This concert also provides an opportunity for the Munster Youth Singers, a youth ensemble newly-formed by Hilary this year, to give their first public appearance, and the Russian pianist, Galina Badmaeva, a musician of truly exceptional talent, who will accompany both choirs on the night, will add great colour and dynamic to the whole. Iconic and much-loved Irish folk melodies in fresh choral arrangements will share the programme with con-temporary music from American composers and, as a tribute to Youghal and its sea-faring history, the Gentlemen of The Orpheus Choir will even add a 'salty' ingredient to the proceedings with a rousing sea-shanty!


Tickets €12.50 concessions €10.00.
