Intergenerational Choir Performance

The Ballyconnell Intergenerational Community Choir will present a wonderful uplifting programme of music. Director of the choir Karina Charles Lynch is very keen to get people of all ages singing together. We all know that singing makes us feel good. Andrew Lynch is on keyboard accompaniment. This will be an opportunity to hear a new Community Choir with a few solo numbers by Karina and Andrew and perhaps a special guest.
