Louisburgh Voices is an adult choir established by Pauline and Michael in September 2018. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings, 7.30-9.15pm in Louisburgh primary school, and sing a wide variety of music - from popular music and music theatre to folks-songs and Classical music.
Louisburgh Voices sang at the Louisburgh Christmas Fair in December 2018, and also performed to a packed Parochial Hall for Louisburgh Music School's Christmas Concert on 12th December. In January 2019, Louisburgh Voices sang arrangements of Robert Burns songs at a Burns Night Banquet in Glen Keen Farm, which raised €2000 for Mayo Roscommon Hospice. We performed as part of a fundraiser for Louisburgh primary school in The Derrylahan on Saturday 27th April.
We also took part in the Mayo International Choral Festival (Castlebar Sings concert) in May 2019, followed by a performance of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas on 28th June in Louisburgh Parochial Hall. In November 2019, we joined with Cór Mhaigh Eo to perform Fauré's Requiem at Ballintubber Abbey, raising funds for Ballintubber Abbey Trust and the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association. Louisburgh Voices sang at the Louisburgh Music School Christmas Concert last December, and for Louisburgh's GAA Presentation Night a few weeks later.
