* Kildare County Council to support new multicultural community singing group in Kildare Town
* Singing group to reflect cultural diversity in Kildare today
*Calling for community members to lead the group, both musically and organisationally
Kildare County Council is pleased to partner with the One Town One Voice initiative in establishing a multicultural singing group for the community of Kildare Town.
The One Town One Voice initiative aims to establish secular community singing groups made up of Irish people and those who have moved to towns from other countries in recent years. The aim is to use communal singing to bring people together regardless of nationality, to enable and enhance greater community integration, and build closer communities.
The singing group is open to all (no audition required!), and seeking a diverse membership that reflects the beautiful cultural diversity of Kildare Town (ages 18+).
Our vision is that ‘The One Voice Singers – Kildare’ will be a true community group, led by members of the community, in partnership with the community. The goal is to enable and encourage connections between people who might otherwise not meet or would not feel part of the same community, and then to help those connections flourish…all the while having great musical fun!
The group will meet on Monday nights from 7:30-9pm starting April 17th, at St. Brigid’s Primary School – Presentation Building, Grey Abbey Road, Kildare Town. The first night will kick off with some singing and an info session, tea and coffee — with plenty of singing and socialising in the weeks to come!
We invite anyone interested in singing alongside your fellow community members to register here or simply come along on the night.
We are currently seeking a Musical Lead for the group, as well as community volunteers interested in helping organisationally or with member recruitment. If you are interested, please contact Carmel Cashin at firstname.lastname@example.org / 087 721 2966 .
