Chorus rehearsals for Kilkenny Opera will be starting in early January and organisers are looking for chorus members.

Auditions will be held in early January and organisers are keen to get local people who can sing to take part. Participants don’t have to be able to read music or necessarily have experience, as full training will be an integral part of the rehearsal process.

The intention is to perform two or three concerts in May in the Watergate Theatre with chorus and a lineup of solo artists and orchestra.

The Kilkenny Academy of Music was also featured in a live broadcast on George Lee’s programme The Business on RTÉ on Saturday.
