Nás na Rí Singers Present an evening of music from film and stage. 24 May 2018
Nás na Rí Singers annual Summer Concert is a highlight of the local choral music scene, and this year promises to be really special. The concert “Songs from the Stage” is the culmination of a wonderful year where the choir headlined a gala concert in Mount Argus Church, Dublin, raising €11,000 for Trocaire, held local audiences spellbound with a Christmas concert featuring the angelic voices of the Chamber Choir of Our Ladys’ College, and travelled to Armagh Cathedral to join a host of carefully selected choirs from all over Ireland to perform in a film in honour of St Patrick.
After such a busy year, the choir is returning to one of its favourite venues, the Moat Theatre in Naas, on Thursday 24th May, for the final concert of the year. In 2016, the Moat Theatre was our charity partner and our two Christmas concerts raised €4,000 for the restoration of the theatre. We loved the small intimate venue so much we hope to return again and again.
Being set in a theatre, we felt this year's summer show is the perfect opportunity to showcase our repertoire from the world's most popular stage productions. We are sure to send the audience home humming, featuring popular opera choruses and music from West End and Broadway hits such as Cats, Les Miserables, Chess and many more. On the night the choir and its soloists will be joined by local rising stars, sopranos Emilie McCarthy and Aimee Kearney. The Nás na Rí Singers enjoy providing a platform for upcoming local musicians and have collaborated with many who are now household names in music.
After the concert on 24th May, we will have a well deserved break until September when the Nás na Rí Singers will start preparing for next year when, as the only selected choir representing Leinster, we will collaborate with Chamber Choir Ireland to present an evening of specially commissioned choral works at the National Concert Hall. The choir welcomes new members every September and details of application and auditions (held each August) can be found here on the website www.nasnari.weebly.com
Tickets for Songs from the Stage are priced at €15 and €10 and are available from the Moat Theatre box office. This intimate venue is sure to sell out… so book early to avoid disappointment. booking at https://moattheatre.ticketsolve.com/shows/873590419
