The Kilkenny Choir, founded in 1992 by Philip Edmondson (musical director) has become a nationally recognised choral ensemble and their biannual concerts, which often feature professional orchestras and soloists, draw in appreciative audiences from across the county. The Choir boasts a repertoire that spans musical works from Seventeenth Century composers Monteverdi and Bach to Twentieth Century Stravinsky and Britten. Comprising approximately 60 singers, membership is drawn from the entire south-east region and the group have collaborated with a number of other choral societies throughout the country.
2018 marks the year when The Kilkenny Choir passes the baton from its founding father, Philip Edmondson, to a new music director, Thomas Kehoe.
Participation in the choir affords members the opportunity to socialize with other music lovers whilst learning and enhancing their own musical skills
