Singers of all nationalities are being called upon to join a brand new international choir in Killarney next week.

Whether you love singing your country’s traditional songs or want to learn songs from another language, then Killarney International Choir may be just for you.

Those behind the new project, Marilyn Catapat-Counihan, Paul O'Raw and Phil Leen, felt a need to develop it following the Killarney Immigrant Support Centre (KASI) Christmas party in December.

“At the KASI party we had a sing-song,” Marilyn told the Killarney Advertiser this week.

“Paul brought his guitar and we had a great time so we thought maybe we should set up a choir.”

She added that all nationalities are welcome however they must be aged over 18.

“Paul’s idea is to have songs from different parts of the world in that language that we all can learn. We are open to male and female members from all countries and backgrounds. It’s a celebration of diversity, cultures and common humanity.”

An information evening will be held next Friday, February 28 at the Parish Centre beside the Church of the Resurrection, at 7pm. Paul can be contacted on 0872317204 or Marilyn on 086 7915742.

“It was great to have Jordan on, two Killarney men! I really enjoyed it, it got a massive reaction and I got loads of emails and messages afterwards and into Thursday morning.”
