Cork sings for Cope

Wednesday, 5th December, 2018 4:44pm

A concert featuring one of Cork’s most loved men’s choirs will take place in aid of Cope Foundation this weekend.

The City of Cork Male Voice Choir and Cork soprano Cara O’Sullivan will appear at City Hall on Sunday 9 December for a concert titled Beautiful City.

The concert is being organised by the Choir as part of its Golden Jubilee celebrations, marking the international success of the group since its inception in 1968.

Proceeds from the concert will go to Cope Foundation, which supports over 2,300 children and adults with intellectual disability and/or autism at 65 locations throughout Cork city and county.

Over the years, the City of Cork Male Voice Choir has had many competitive successes in major national competitions including the Cork Choral Festival, in past years participating in the Pan Celtic Festival, Oireachtas competitions and at the International Eisteddfod in Wales.

The choir has travelled extensively throughout Europe and the US, marching in the St Patrick’s Day Parade in New York in 2004 and taking part in ‘A Nation’s Voice’ with the RTE Symphony Orchestra during the Easter 2016 commemoration ceremonies in Collins Barracks, Dublin.

The concert also gives Corkonians a chance to hear one of its own ‘divas’ Cara O’Sullivan, who is salways popular and appreciated by the people of the city.

There will be a particular focus on the music and songs traditionally associated with Cork city on the night. Other participants include the Sonatinas Choir from Glanmire and Music Mash Up singers from Cope Foundation.

Tickets for the concert can be obtained from ProMusica on Oliver Plunkett Strett, The Zipyard on North Main Street, copefoundation.ie/beautifulcity, or for further details phone 085-8009388 or 086-0652782.
