It’s the choir that sings with a smile on its face and doesn’t even demand its members to have a note in their head. And it’s looking for new members.
The Survivors Choir has been a familiar sight and sound at every Relay for Life event in recent years – the purple tops and that mischievous sense of humour standing them out from their peers.
This Wednesday evening, the choir, made up of men and women who have come through the cancer journey, will meet up in the Mount Errigal Hotel in Letterkenny as the countdown continues to this year’s Donegal Relay for Life event which is being staged on the weekend of June 2nd and 3rd.
Choir director, Donal Kavanagh, is appealing for new members to join up with this unique singing group.
“The ability to laugh at yourself is essential and in point of fact you’d have to go way down the criteria list to number seven or eight before locating the singing ability element.
“And even if you can’t sing a note, you’re still welcome to join up,” laughs Donal.
That’s not to say that this choir isn’t blessed with talent – anyone who has heard them perform will testify that they are indeed well versed in musical ability.
The choir meets up at 7.30.p.m. in the Mount Errigal Hotel on Wednesday (11th).
If you fit the criteria, go along and join up – no singing experience necessary but a touch of wit will go a long way…!Tags:
