In November 1992, a group of irish immigrants and their Canadian froends formed the Irsih Cultural Society of Calgary Choir. Thirty years later this welcoming group of singers regularly rehearse on Wednesday night at the Irish Cultural Society Hall located in Bowness.
The Choir performs and entertains at multiple venues in and around Calgary; cultural festivals, folk clubs, nursing homes, and the ProArts Society Noon Series at the Cathedral church of the Redeemer.
On March 03, 2020 we were invited to sing at the Nose Hill Library. Another wonderful event for the choir to share our enthusiasm and love of our culture in song with our neighbours and friends.
Little did we know, that would be our last live performance for over two years. The choir continued to "meet" during COVID on Zoom, but it was not the same. We are delighted to be back together again.
Seniors Week at the Irish cultural Centre gave us the opportunity to perform June 07, 2022. It was amazing to be in front of a live audience once again. Later in June 2022, we returned to perform at the Water Valley Celtic Festival. An amazing venue to share our Celtic heritage.
We are delighted to be invited to sing for you and hope you will sing along or tap your feet to our program.
Joe Massey conducts the choir and arranges the set programs, while Leslie O'Loughlin and Tara O'Sullivan (piano) and Lane Henry (violin) Greg Black (guitar) Doug Wagner ( Fiddle) Tony Hogan (bodhran) Joe Massey (whistle) provide accompaniment for this amazing, fun loving , joyful choir.
