GLÓR Youth Choir Performed

On RTE1 Television - Christmas Day


GLÓR Youth Choir Conducted by Ciaran Brady, and Tullamore Presbyterian Church led by Rev. William Hayes, had the privilege and honour to have been invited by RTE, to perform on RTE1 Television’s Christmas Day Service 2018.

The talented Youth choir made up of secondary school age members from throughout the midlands took a very exciting trip to the RTÉ Television Studios, a few Sundays before Christmas, where they enjoyed a full day recording an hour long Service of festive Christmas Carol’s. It was broadcast on Christmas Day at 11am on RTE1.

This considerable privilege and honour was bestowed on the choir following an end of Summer Radio broadcast last May with Tullamore Presbyterian Church also led by Rev. William Hayes that the choir recorded for RTE Radio1.

Although only being in existence for a little over 2 years now, the choir has achieved enormous success.

They claimed first prize in the Junior Youth Choir competitions at Kilkenny Choral Festival in 2017 and were hugely successful as placed trophy winners out of 19 choirs in Ireland’s “National Youth Choir of the Year 2017”.

Last year, 2018, was extremely busy as the choir achieved 2 Second places in the Junior Sacred Music and Secondary Schools/Youth competitions at Navan Choral Festival last March, and since resuming rehearsals in September, the choir have achieved a very competitive 4th place at Wale’s international choral competition in November.

This year GLÓR Youth choir plan on expanding their technical repertoire and participating in further competitive performances.
