Although the choir has always had in its repertoire a wide variety of music - both sacred and secular, in recent years, this has been substantially broadened to include arrangements by our Musical Director Sam Cuddy, such as 'The Promise', Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' and 'Carrickfergus'.

The Spring series takes a theme, e.g. this year it was 'Swing' and included 'Alexander's Ragtime Band', 'New York, New York', 'Put a Little Love in Your Heart' and 'Oh Happy Day'. We also perform songs and medleys from stage and screen, including 'les Miserables', 'Miss Saigon' 'Phantom of the Opera' and 'The Sound of Music', to name but a few. Our 2011 Christmas concert series ends with 'A Choral Christmas Cracker' in the Burnavon Theatre, Cookstown.

Each year the choir also has a chance to collaborate with their twinned town choir, Plene Voce, to put on a concert either in Northern Ireland or France. This concert provides the opportunity for the choir to undertake both modern and classic songs. For more information on the choir's pairing with Plene Voce please visit the Twinned Town page.
