Ballyclare Male Voice Choir

Last night I was at the Spires Conference Centre (otherwise known as The Assembly Hall in Presbyterian Church House) for the 75th Anniversary Gala Concert of Ballyclare Male Choir. My father-in-law is one of their second tenors, and it was a great night. Displaying their wide range of musical styles, they thundered through the programme, delighting the packed audience.

In the first half of the programme, they were joined by the City of Belfast School of Music Concert Band, who were brilliant! Sadly they left during the interval (maybe it was past their bedtime...) and were replaced by the Celtic Tenors who shone in the second half of the evening.

The finale (The Holy City) brought the house down, and pointed to the new Jerusalem which will one day descend from heaven to be our dwelling. Hosanna to your King!

Their next engagements are a service in the Old Presbyterian Church, Ballyclare on 22nd February, and a concert in the Waterfront Hall on Monday 23rd February.
