Lady Hermon MP

Message from choir President Lady Hermon June 2019

“To everyone in the choir I express my deepest gratitude for your performances at home and abroad this year.  Your continued support for local charities throughout the year is once again outstanding and a credit to you all. I wish the incoming committee and the choir every success for the incoming season.

There is no greater ambassador for Donaghadee and Northern Ireland than this wonderful choir, and I wish to repeat my pride and honour to be its President.”

At the recent 2019 AGM of the choir, Musical Director Ivan Black reported:

“Last season was a varied and successful one for the choir. There were many memorable engagements and it would be unfair to single out any in particular, but I am happy to report on another very successful Annual Concert in a packed Aurora Centre in Bangor.

I must also mention the wonderful choir trip to Budapest in April this year. As always choir trips are an absolute success, and proved that the comradeship and enjoyment, allied to singing at the wide range of concert venues are something to experience and remember. We sang in some magnificent locations with other visiting choirs, and we can never forget the experience of singing in the Basilica Esztergom during a trip around the beautiful Danube.

I wish to pay tribute to all those who work away behind the scenes to organise our engagements and trips to ensure that the future of Donaghadee Male Voice Choir is secure, and I look forward with anticipation and excitement to the in-coming season.”

Stuart joined our ranks early in 2019 and really enjoyed his first trip away with the choir to Budapest in April.  A true character and an asset to the choir.
