Meath Diocesan Choir resumes rehearsals shortly and is delighted to welcome all those with even the slightest interest in singing to become a member of the choir. The choir, formed in 1999, continues to flourish and expand its membership, which now comprises 140 members from the various churches throughout the diocese. Our rehearsals take place in Navan and Mullingar to facilitate both ends of the diocese. Prospective members can rest assured that rehearsals are conducted in a relaxed and easy manner and the number of rehearsals is kept to a minimum. The choir is particularly interested in acquiring new men to its ranks. Forthcoming rehearsals will concentrate on the revision of our wide repertoire of church music.  So a great time to join. First rehearsal May 8th in St. Finian’s College Mullingar or May 14th in Dowdstown House, Navan at 8pm.
