Artane Community Choir formed in September 2015 making them new to the choral scene and especially new to the symphony scene! There are approximately 65 members in the choir. Although relatively new, Artane Community Choir has performed with the Artane Band in the National Concert Hall, they competed in the Navan Choral Festival in 2015 and they have sung at community events such as Christmas concerts, school collaborations, fundraising events and memorial services. The Artane Community Choir are delighted to be involved in this collaboration. Whereas generally in rehearsals they sing a varied repertoire including Broadway songs, popular music, ballads, jazz and folk songs, Mendelssohn has been a wonderful challenge for the Artane Community Choir and an enriching experience in choral singing and collaboration.
