Two decades of Galway Choral Association

Galway Choral Association celebrated its 20th anniversary this evening with a gala concert at St Nicholas’ Collegiate Church.  The 50 voice adult choir provides a platform for people of all ages including new and experienced signers. Founded in 1998 as an umbrella organisation, it became a limited company and a registered charity in 2006 and has raised thousands of euro for local charities. The choir, directed by Norman Duffy, presented Schubert’s Mas No 2 in G and was joined by St Nicholas’ Schola Cantorum. Also performing were Galway native soloists Aisling Kenny, Matthew Harrison, Peter Mannion and Carol Duffy who were accompanied by organist David Grealy who is a former member and son of founder member Tom Grealy.
