Choral Conducting Workshop for Parish Organists and Choir Directors

By Lynn Glanville

Christ Church Cathedral

Parish organists and choir directors are invited to take part in a Choral Conducting Workshop in Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin, on Thursday November 20 from 6.45 pm to 7.30 pm.

The workshop will be led by the cathedral’s Director of Music, Ian Keatley, and is part of the cathedral’s music outreach programme.

Participants will be invited, if they wish, to conduct the cathedral choir in a simple motet or psalm. Only a small number of places
are available so those wishing to take part should contact Ian at ian.keatley@cccdub.ie by Tuesday 11 November. This will allow time to discuss possible repertoire with participants.

Outreach
and education are priorities for the cathedral music team. They have put
in place a programme that seeks to build
on already existing strong and positive relationships with the parish
churches of the dioceses.

Already, the cathedral choir has visited
Kilbride Church near Bray and St Maelruain’s Church,
Tallaght, to support their harvest thanksgiving
celebrations.

Further developments will see the creation of training
sessions in the cathedral designed to meet the needs of music in
the local church.
