The only thing better than singing is more singing.

The Kilkenny Choir is a long-established, friendly, open age, mixed-voice choir of around 60 singers, based in Kilkenny, Ireland. Our aim is always to be the finest choir in the area and, under the leadership of our Music Director, Thomas Kehoe, we are encouraged and pushed to the highest standards of musical excellence. We actively welcome new recruits and accommodate new members into all of our sections. If you are an experienced singer, you will recognise that we are a high standard choir. If you  are a novice singer looking to improve your standard and aspire to sing with us, we will coach you to this level in a surprisingly short period of time.

We are sure you will find the experience and challenge of singing at this level invigorating, stimulating and rewarding !

We rehearse from the beginning of September until April with breaks of a week at November mid-term, about two weeks at Christmas and usually  a week at Easter. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 8 – 10 pm. Our rehearsal venue isThe Presentation Primary School. Click here for our rehearsal schedule. There are normally two main concerts a year, the Christmas concert taking place in St. John’s Church and the Easter/Summer concert taking place in St. Canice’s Cathedral. We also plan to take  part in other community events.

If you’re interested in becoming a new member of the choir, all you need to do is fill in the contact form here with any queries. We will get back to you.
