'Blessings, Wishes and Fantasies' from the Millennium Choir in Carrick-on-Shannon and Mohill

Soprano Eimear Reynolds.

The 50-member Millennium Choir has been very busy since September putting together a fabulous mix of music for Thursday, March 23 in St Mary's Church (Carrick-on-Shannon) and Friday, March 24 in St Patrick's Church (Mohill).

'Blessings, Wishes and Fantasies' offers beautiful familiar pieces along with new arrangements of magical themes performed by Choir members and guests - the brilliant Soprano Eimear Reynolds (principal singer and co-founder of the award-winning Roscommon Solstice Choir) and popular local singer/guitarist David O'Dowd.

The Millennium Choir are very pleased that the children's choirs from Scoil Mhuire in Carrick and St Manchan's NS in Mohill will be participating with the Choir in several selections as well as doing their own special pieces.

Millennium Choir members performing solo pieces include Bass Cormac Kenny, Soprano Clodagh Redican, and Tenor Joe Lowe, plus a big surprise soloist.

The fabulous accompanist, Fintan Farrelly, who has been with us since the Choir's inception in 1999, leads the 'Millennium Orchestra' comprising Eva Stevkova (violin), Helen Glennon (flute) and Danny Murray (percussion).

Tickets for the concerts are available from Kierans Pharmacy and Mulvey's House of Gifts in Carrick-on-Shannon, and Paul's and Baxter's in Mohill, as well as from Choir members, at the staying-down price of €12 (€10 OAPs) or by ringing 086 067 5283. Concerts begin at 8pm sharp!
