After a two-year hiatus due to Covid 19, the Loveland Choral Society is finally getting to visit the Island of Ireland. This fun bunch from Loveland, Colorado, performs an eclectic mix of musical styles, including classics, jazz, popular songs, and Broadway tunes. Loveland singers hail from all walks of life and represent a wide range of musical backgrounds and experiences.
Loveland is located on the Front Range in Northern Colorado. It’s a picturesque setting, mild climate, and proximity to the majestic Rocky Mountain National Park. Affectionately known as “The Sweetheart City”, Loveland is famous for its valentine remailing programme, when each February, volunteers hand stamp thousands of valentines with a special message. In addition to the Kilkenny concert, the choir will sing in Bray, Dublin, and Belfast before continuing across the Irish sea to Scotland.
