As part of Christ Church Cathedral’s Music Outreach programme, Ian Keatley, Director of Music, Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin,warmly invites parish organists and choir directors to come to a Choral Conducting Workshop which he will lead.
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, if you wish to take part, please contact Ian by Tuesday 11 November to allow time to discuss possible repertoire with participants.
Ian said: “Outreach and education are priorities for the cathedral music team. We 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, to support their harvest thanksgiving celebrations; and more recently, St Maelruain’s Church, Tallaght. Further developments will see the creation of training sessions in the cathedral designed to meet the actual needs of music in the local church.”
