Special concert to mark choir's 75th anniversary

By David tucker

Wexford Male Voice Choir, under the direction of Musical Director Greg Currid, and accompanied by Fiona Kelly, will mark its 75th anniversary with a special concert at the Talbot Hotel at 8 p.m. on Friday (June 24).

The choir, founded by Dr George Hadden in 1941 is reputedly the oldest male voice choir in the Republic and have performed publicly every year since their first performance on June 18, 1941, in the old Theatre Royal in Wexford.

This year's concert will see the choir perform some classic pieces from their repertoire such as 'Speed Your Journey' and 'Hallelujah' along with some new additions like 'Tell My Father,' 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' and 'Can you Feel the Love Tonight'.

The concert will also feature The Silvertones, from Enniscorthy, under the direction of Eithne Corrigan along with The Gemini Ensemble featuring Ruth Millar, Emily Redmond, Ann Wickham and Siobhan Lynch.

Tickets for this very special anniversary concert are €10 and are available on the door on the night or from choir members.
