Cavan Singers perform Antonio Vivaldi’s Gloria on Thursday 7 May at 8pm
Cavan Singers perform a programme of sacred music culminating in Antonio Vivaldi's Gloria (R589) on Thursday, 7th May 2015 in the Cathedral of SS. Patrick and Felin, Cavan.
The Choir is conducted by Paul Flynn. Cavan Singers are performing this event as an outreach project to the secondary schools in the area: Breifne, Loreto and St Patrick's Colleges, and the Royal School.
The music teachers have selected students from each of their respective schools to form a 60 student choir who will perform along with the Cavan Singers at this event. This provides an opportunity for young people already engaged in music in school to participate in music performance in the community and outside the educational context.
Conductor Paul Flynn who is an award winning composer is pleased about the project and says that ‘The aim is to foster, encourage and develop choral singing in the area, something that people from all walks of life can participate in’.
The project will also include workshops with Tom Kendzia, a composer from the USA who is internationally acclaimed as a composer and performer. His piece, Stand by Me, will be one of the numbers sung by the whole group. A number of professional musicians will support the Choir on this occasion and they include: Alto, Niamh O'Hanlon, Soprano, Niamh McCormack and Organist, Eileen Tackney.
Tickets are available at Cavan Gifts, Main St, Cavan and are €10.
