Lisburn Harmony Ladies Choir with Lagan Valiey MLA Basil McCrea at Stormont
LISBURN Harmony Ladies Choir filled Stormont with song recently when they
accepted an invitation to sing at the Assembly buildings. The choir was
around 65 strong and, dressed in their trademark red, black and white, they
sang New York, New York, Hallelujah, Dona Nobis Pacem, Don't Stop Believin',
Bridge Over Troubled Water, Adiemus and May It Be, to name a few. The choir
now has a smaller Chamber Choir of around 16 members and they sang four
"The acoustics in Stormont were beautiful and everyone agreed the choir sounded amazing," said musical director Kirsty Boyle.
"We were delighted to make history at Stormont too, as Basil McCrea invited us into the Chamber to be the first choir to sing inside it.
"I got to conduct from the Speaker's platform, which was very exciting. There were many jokes about it being the first time there was 'harmony' within the Chamber."
The choir's first formal concert in Lisburn takes place on Friday April 1 at 7.30pm in the Island Hall, when they will be joined by the Lisburn Saxophone Ensemble and St. Aloysius Primary School Choir.
The compere for the evening will be the irrepressible Wilfie Pyper.
Tickets are still available, priced at £6, from the Island Hall Box Office on 9250 9254.
