Choral Alumni Reunion at NUI Galway

Monday, 27 August 2007

A reunion to celebrate 40 years of choral singing at NUI Galway will be held in the University from Friday 28th to Sunday 30th September 2007.

Cór an Choláiste will host a weekend of meetings and rehearsals which will culminate in a choral performance on the evening of Saturday 29th. In addition to the current conductor, Thomas Cryan, former University choir conductors, Peter Mannion (BSc 2006), Dr Brendan O'Connor (BSc 1982, PhD 1985) and John Murphy (BA 1970), will return to conduct graduate groups in this performance.

The concert will also include a guest performance by Cois Cladaigh and traditional music performances from society members from the relevant years. This performance will be free and open to the public.

Tickets to participate in the Choral Alumni Reunion Weekend are €20.00 per person. If you have any queries or require information, please contact Sheila Gorham in the Alumni Office at: 091 493750 or email alumni@nuigalway.ie or contact Dr Brendan O'Connor at: 091 756812 or email boc@aquafact.ie

Hundreds of UCG/NUI Galway graduates were members of, or associated with, the various University choirs over the years. Unfortunately many of their names do not appear on our mailing list. To ensure that everyone interested is given an opportunity to participate, we ask that you contact the NUI Galway Alumni Office with contact information of choir members.
