Thukolo comprises of thirty members plus - all of whom share a great love of gospel and spiritual music. This year we attended the Bray Gospel Rising weekend and the Kilkenny Gospel Festival and gained much from the many and varied workshops.
Our Musical Director, Áine Prendergast now in her second term in this role is ably supported by two talented musicians- fellow Clara man- John Tully and John Cassidy lead singer with Memphis Cats.
With the wealth of talent amongst our members we can produce a repertoire of songs to suit all occasions - Corporate Events, Weddings, Nursing Homes, Mass etc. Our ethos is “to give back to our local community all monies we receive as donations from these enjoyable events.”
Last Tuesday night 20th November we made presentations to four very worthy recipients, Kilkenny Chernobyl Outreach, Mother of Fair Love School, School of the Holy Spirit and St. Vincent de Paul Society.
We thank them sincerely for their great work in our local community. Thukolo members will be very busy next month ; 2nd December - Sunday Mass in St. John’s Church at 7.30pm; 5th December - Wednesday- Singing in the Arboretum, Leighlinbridge at 8pm, for “Éist-Carlow Cancer Support Centre”. A centre for those living with cancer, for survivors and those bereaved where they can come to be listened to or just listen as the name suggests; 16th December we will be performing in the Castle 2 to 2.30pm and later that afternoon 3 -3.30pm on the Parade (Christmas Markets).; 18th December - Tuesday 7.30pm singing in Drakelands House Nursing Home
We welcome your support on these occasions and we acknowledge that without your generosity we would not be in a position to give donations to local worthy organisations. Thanks to one and all.
