It is with regret we have to report the shocking loss of another choir member, Terry Craig. A stalwart and leading light for many years.  Terry was Chairman in 2016 and Treasurer for several years, managing choir trips etc.  Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.

Unfortunately present Covid restrictions limit attendance and, prevent choir members attending any service or committal.  A small representation only, without singing, is representing the choir at this time.

Covid-19 is still prevalent and disrupting life as we knew it a year ago. The restrictions require us to remain at home, protecting everyone, and the choir hall is quiet. Stay safe until we can return with friends to enjoy music together once again.

It is sad to report the loss of another choir member this year.  Bobby Boyd was a stalwart member of our second bass section for many years and rarely missed practice or choir outings.

Always a smile and a joke, no matter what the situation.

The choir wish to extend their condolences to the family at this sad time.

During these strange testing times there has been some work going on at home and then displayed on the harbour wall, Donaghadee.

Keep up the good work.  Keep your eyes open for more masterpieces.

 

Stay safe.

Our annual concert in Bangor Aurora of Friday 22nd April 2019

A very successful night with Walter Love as the compere to introduce the choir and then fabulous Ballyholme Primary School children, Crawford Bell, Andrew McBride and Gareth James as they entertained a full house in the Bangor Aurora complex.  Many thanks are extended to all who made this possible, including the staff of the Aurora, all the artists and of course the audience who responded well to the varied program.

Choir trip to Croatia April 2018

The Choir had a great trip to Croatia for five days in April, staying at Apotija on the Croatian Riviera. Highlights included a concert in St. Jacob’s Church, Apotija, a gala concert with eight other choirs in the town and a descent into the incredible limestone caves complex at Postojna in Slovenia, where we sang with the other choirs in a huge cavern. Here are a few photos taken on the trip.
