Voices of Bray Community Choir Celebrates 10th Anniversary
June 8th 9th and 10th, at the Mermaid Arts Theatre Bray at 8pm.

After a 4-year gap, the Voices of Bray Community Choir returned to the Mermaid Arts Centre for its summer concert series. This year is extra special as the choir celebrates its 10th anniversary and the choir was thrilled to sing to a packed house on all three nights.

Apart from celebrating what has been achieved from a singing perspective, the choir’s anniversary also marks ten years of fundraising for local charities. During that time the choir has raised and donated over €75,000 benefitting 17 different local charities. For this summer series the choir is delighted to be partnering with St. Joseph’s Shankill – Dedicated to Dementia Care.

Founded in 2013, the choir focuses mainly on popular music repertoire with the occasional dip into other genres. Membership of the choir, which is open to adults on a non-audition basis, stands at 130 and is limited only by the size of available rehearsal and performance spaces. Such is the demand for places that there is often a lengthy waiting list.

For many members, Voices of Bray has provided their first experience of singing in a choir. For Musical Director John Ivory, one of the challenges is choosing a repertoire that is accessible to less experienced singers, and yet provides a challenge to the more experienced members – a balance that so far has proved very successful in the development of the choir.

The choir is always seeking new challenges. To date they have participated twice in the North Wales Choral Festival and most recently in 2020 – just before Covid shut down most of the arts industry – the choir achieved 2nd place in the community choir section of the Limerick Choral Festival. That was the choir’s last public performance until our Christmas Concert in December 2022.
