The Choirs of Whitefriar Street Church
Whitefriar Street Church is served by three choirs, each with their own unique style. Although each is different, their generosity and willingness is the same. Their ability to enhance liturgies is wonderful, and greatly appreciated by the Carmelites and by all who join our liturgical celebrations.
The 10.30 Choir:
The 10.30 Choir is a children's choir. They rehearse at 10.15 every Sunday, with an occasional practice. It is a great experience for the children, as it builds their confidence and introduces them to music in a friendly and fun way. The choir is directed by Roisin Kane, and they are always looking for new members. There is only one restriction to membership: you must be over 4 years old. If you are interested in joining, please come along to the 10.30 Mass and talk to Roisin afterwards.
The 11.30 Choir:
The 11.30 Choir, in its current form, was founded 13 years ago. The choir excels in singing the more traditional hymns, to encourage the congregation to participate and join in. They meet every Wednesday at 8.00 p.m. in the Carmelite Community Centre to practice, for approx. 1 hour. The choir currently have twenty members or so, but are always delighted to welcome more. Perhaps you might be interested in joining? Understanding how busy peoples lives are these days, the choir operates on an open door policy of attend to sing when you can. The choir is directed by Roisin Kane. For further information, please come along any Wednesday evening or Sunday morning and speak with Fergus.
The 4 o'clock Choir:
The 4 o'clock Choir is an amateur choir with a professional approach. They rehearse at 3 o'clock every Sunday and sing at the 4 o'clock Mass. They have a varied repertoire of sacred music, which they sing at Masses, but also have an opportunity to perform more secular music at different concerts and events. The choir is directed by Roisin Kane, and are always looking for new members. If you are interested, please come along to the 4 o'clock Mass and talk to Roisin afterwards.
