Aoide - A Choir for All
Aoide (Pronounced as Ay-oh-dee, meaning 'to sing') was formed in September 2014, as part of the Mid-West Vocal Academy and Music School & is a mixed voice community choir based in the Castletroy area of Limerick. In Greek mythology, Aoide was the muse of song and we love to sing!
In its short existence, the choir has grown to fifty members and has already performed many fundraising concerts, most recently raising money for Limerick Animal Welfare, Limerick Lions Club and CMRF Crumlin.
The choir covers popular, upbeat music & is non-auditioning. Everyone from the beginner to the experienced is welcome to join in a relaxed and fun learning environment, led by international tenor, Owen Gilhooly.
Most recently Aoide won the Delia Murphy Competition for First Time Competitors at the 2017 Mayo International Choral Festival.
The choir rehearses on Monday nights from 19:30 at Kilmurry Arts and Heritage Centre. Further details can be found at www.midwestvocalacademy.com
