RSCM (Royal School of Church Music) Ireland would like to invite organists and small church choirs to take part in two two-hour workshops.
These will be conducted by Nathan Barrett, who is the Organist and Choir Director at St Paul’s Church, Glenageary, Co Dublin. They take place on July 16 at St Brigid’s Cathedral, Kildare.
