Cór na Céad - Galway's Virtual Choir

Virtual Performance of Siúil a Rúin by Cór na Céad


Watch Galway’s largest acappella virtual choir performing a beautiful arrangement of the Irish folk song ‘Siúil a Rúin’, in the premiere screening of a recording from earlier this year. Directed and organised by Peter Mannion, Cór na Céad is a choir of over 100 singers who have never sung together in real life but have created art digitally as a response to the Covid19 pandemic. The virtual choir formed in June 2020 during the pandemic lockdown, with all learning and recording happening in singers’ own homes.

The piece is arranged by Dublin-based composer Michael McGlynn, the director of Irish choir ANÚNA.  Funded by the Arts Council. Join with the singers, their friends and families in watching their video live and for the first time!
