We are delighted to welcome back Gracenotes to Clifden having given us a highly acclaimed performance earlier this year. Established in 1999, Gracenotes is based in Ballyhaunis, County Mayo, with over 30 singers drawn from the locality and surrounding counties.
This female-voice choir performs a varied repertoire, mostly a capella, ranging from early music to contemporary, and includes a selection of spirituals and and folk music to add a lighter touch.The choir has won major awards at festivals at Limerick, Navan, Sligo and at the Cork International Choral Festival. The choir also travels widely and has performed at concerts in Italy, Hungary, Czech Republic, Spain, Poland and most recently in France.
The choir is conducted by Laura Brogan, one of its founding members.
We are privileged to have a choir of such exceptional talent to perform for us at this years Clifden Arts Festival.
