Two choral groups are planning to come together for a special night of song next week and plan to raise plenty of funds for charity.
Blackwater Singers present ‘A Night of Song’ in the Blackwater Tavern on Thursday, April 11 at 8.30pm. And special guests on the night include Killarney ladies singing group Finding Your Voice.
Admission is free but donations will be greatly accepted to raise funds for Crumlin Children’s Hospital and for Tralee boy Noah Switzer Buckley who suffers with Autism, Musical Director for the event Mary Culloty O’Sullivan told the Killarney Advertiser this week.
“One of the ladies in the Blackwater group had a child who attended Crumlin Hospital so they chose that as their charity,” Mary said.
“The Killarney ladies group picked Noah Switzer Buckley. It’s going to be a great night. There’ll be songs from both groups and at the end both will come together and sing ‘Ireland’s Call’ to raise the roof for the grand finale.”
Mary’s husband Paul O’Sullivan will be the sound engineer on the night.
And she added that everyone involved is giving their time for free.
“Thanks to Mary and Teddy O’Neill, both members of the Blackwater group, who have kindly allowed us to perform in the Blackwater Tavern. Everyone is giving up their own time for this evening and every penny is going to the charities.”
