Celebrating Mental Health Week with singing is the perfect combination as group singing has been scientifically proven to lower stress, relieve anxiety, and elevate endorphins.

Musical Director and Music Educator, Máiréad Ní Chondiún will be leading over 70 enthusiastic singers from all over North Clare to include the Burren Children’s Choir and Miltown Malbay Community Choir. Forty visiting youth members from The Kastellaun Youth Choir in Germany will join them. Together they will be performing an evening of choral classics, folksong and world music.

The Burren Children’s Choir will be hosting the German choir in October as part of a musical cultural exchange during National Choral Singing Week. They have arranged a wonderful programme of activities so that their visitors can become immersed in the culture and hospitality of the Burren. The German choir members, ranging in age from 13-24 will stay with the families of the Burren Children’s Choir.

Tickets are priced at €10 and are available at the door for what will be a night of uplifting power and joyful singing.
