Nás Na Rí singers get set for summer concert in Naas

Nás na Rí singers

Nás na Rí Singers have announced details of their upcoming concert, which will take place this weekend.

The Summer Concert will take place in St David's Church, Main St, Naas at 8pm on Sunday, May 29,and music-lovers of all ages are welcome to a program offering everything from well-known classical arrangements, to brand new or rarely performed pieces.

As a nod towards the Centenary 1916 celebrations, the concert will also include glorious new arrangements of some old Irish favourites, such as Down By The Sally Gardens, and a small number of popular Irish language songs.

Directed by Áine Mulvey and accompanied by Annalisa Monticelli, the choir is happy to welcome two up and coming local stars as guest soloists on the evening. Local baritone Peter Manning and young Naas harpist Ruth O'Hara are sure to add hugely to the celebration.

The evening will be the culmination of a busy year which saw the choir welcome the people of Naas to an open rehearsal as part of Culture Night, sell-out their massively popular Christmas CD, raise €9,800 for Friends of Naas Hospital, and compete in the New Ross Choral Festival.

The choir was also delighted to welcome half a dozen new voices after the open auditions in September.

Tickets for this highly anticipated annual event will be available at Barker and Jones Bookstore, Poplar Square, Naas and from members of the choir.

Priced at €15, tickets are sure to be snapped up for the ever-popular intimate venue of St David's Church.
