Moville Gospel Concert

Have your say

Moville Gospel Choir will hold its end-of-season concert next Friday 24th June in St Eugene’s Hall at 8.00 p.m. In what promises to be an energetic and entertaining musical experience, the choir, under Conductor Debbie Kelly and Musical Director, Frank Fiorentini, will perform favourites from their extensive repertoire.

Previous concerts in Moville have been sell-outs, and the choir performs a range of music, from Gospel to contemporary, giving the music its own unique stamp.

 Since its foundation 3 years ago at the instigation of Fr. Paddy O’Kane, the choir has built up a reputation for high energy performance and musical excellence. It regularly enthrals the congregation at 12 o’clock Mass in St. Pius X in Moville and at venues around Inishowen and Derry. Between singers and the band, the choir has in excess of 40 members with a wide range of ages and musical backgrounds. Since its formation, the choir has developed into a proficient and practiced musical outfit.

Indeed it is a testament to Debbie and Frank’s professionalism and commitment, that news of their retirement from their roles in the choir due to other commitments, was met with dismay by members.

They will be sorely missed, and all members feel privileged to have worked with them. Debbie and Frank will finish out their last season with the choir with the concert on the 24th June, and a recital at the blessing of the Fleet in Greencastle on 12th August.

 The choir plans to build on the foundation set by Debbie and Frank, and have begun the difficult process of replacing them by inviting expressions of interest in the position of Choir Director.
