True Reflections of Love and Hope - Virginia Gospel Choir
Formed fifteen years ago and currently under the directorship of Carmel Reilly, Virginia Gospel Choir’s members hail from a wide catchment area across Cavan and Meath. The choir previously supported Harlem Gospel Choir (2018) and The Three Tenors (2011) in Solstice and in 2011 they represented Ulster in RTE’s All Ireland Talent Show and performed at The National Concert Hall.
The theme of this concert, inspired by recently deceased and much-loved member Thomas Reilly, is ‘True Reflections of Love and Hope’. This will be a night of joyous remembrance where audience and performers alike can celebrate those who love us and give us hope in our lives. Who is the ‘Thomas’ in your life? The Gospel songs chosen embody this spirit of love and hope, providing an uplift to all present. The programme will also include well-known songs from pop culture (Michael Jackson and Kodaline to mention just two) with strong moral messages. The audience will be encouraged to dance, clap and sing along.
