Westport Children’s Choir Christmas Concert

Sunday, December 9th, 3pm

Tickets: €10/7 & €30 Family of 4

Westport Children’s Choir presents the pure voices of the talented children of west County Mayo, in a concert of seasonal music for Christmas. Founded in 2011 by Eriko Hopkinson, the choir now includes a Junior section for 6 – 9 year olds, the Senior Choir for 9 – 14 year olds, and a new Youth Choir for 14 – 18 year olds.

The choir have won many awards and competitions, and the Senior Choir recently took part in the world premiere performance of a new piece for children’s choir and orchestra by Venezuelan composer Cristian Grases, in New York’s Carnegie Hall. The programme for this concert will include several well-known Christmas favourites, and also some lesser known songs from the worlds of pop and jazz. The choir will be accompanied by Ausra Kvietkute on piano, Julie Langan on violin and Edward Hopkinson on tin whistle.
