About the Choir

Having started life as the Peninsula Youth Choir in 2010, the Choir has evolved into an adult women’s choir, and we are now a group of some 30 women from all over the  Ards Peninsula who are brought together by a love of singing.  This photo was taken when we sang in Parliament Buildings,  Stormont,  in December 2014.  We are  led by Bee Kupicha (front row, 3rd  from left); the lone gent was our then keyboard accompanist, Michael Yeomans.  Our accompanist is now Emma Morgan, who is a music teacher.

This photo was taken at our summer concert in June 2016 at Cloughey Presbyterian Church. Our new accompanist, EmmaMorgan, is second from left, front row.

We practise upstairs in Maxwell’s Courtyard, Main Street, Kircubbin, every Tuesday evening (except July and August) from 7:15pm to 8:45pm.

We sing a wide variety of music, encompassing folk songs, old pop favourites, spirituals, madrigals, rounds, etc, and exploring songs from the 16th to the 21st century. Our members have a wide range of musical abilities,  from those who are really good at sight-reading to those who cannot read music at all, with every shade in between. And although most of our songs are from sheet music, much of it is learned by heart.

We believe in enjoyment in everything we do. Singing together brings this quality with it – whatever the hard work, it is uplifting and fun.
