Building on the success of our primary BIG SING Days, MGOW, in partnership with the Irish Youth Choir and Sing Ireland seeks to develop choral partnerships with Offaly & Westmeath secondary schools each academic year.
SingOUT! gives secondary schools with choirs and without, a chance to take part in a range of workshops culminating in a group sing - all under the expert guidance of our very own artistic director Greg Beardsell.
Getting involved is easy!
Participating schools nominate a lead teacher who will prepare a shared repertoire through a combination of school based rehearsals supported by area rehearsals. Greg Beardsell will lead the project as artistic director and join the choirs for the SingOUT! Day with regional rehearsals in the run up to the May event to be led by IYC tenor vocal coach and National Choir member, Alan Leech.
Singers & lead teachers will come together for the Secondary SING OUT in Athlone Institute of Technology for a series of workshop sessions leading to the big SingOUT! and are invited to join in the Singfest Gala Concert on the following Saturday.
