Tickets for both the live concert and the streamed concert will be €10.  Carnew MS are so looking forward to doing a live performance. 

Carnew MS met the challenges of the return to rehearsals head on when they commenced at the beginning of September. Getting back together initially took a lot of organising by the committee, but bv September both Jennifer Byrne who has taken on the role of Musical Director and the chorus (initially split into four groups depending on vocal range) were excited to return to rehearsals. For the first few weeks took place in the carpark of the Carnew Training and Consultancy offices. Outdoor rehearsals were very enjoyable, even having to compete with a murder of crows for volume!. The change in restrictions on September 20th were welcome, allowing performers to go indoors, out of the darkness, into St. Brigid’s Hall for rehearsals.
