Magical night with Solstice Choir

Concert was in aid of Church project

Last Friday night the Sacred Heart Church was the venue for a magical night of musical entertainment provided by the wonderful Roscommon Solstice Choir.

The Solstice Choir, under the guidance of Choir Directors Eimear and Andrew Reynolds, performed to a large crowd, with the event a fundraising boost for the essential repairs planned for the landmark church.

On behalf of the Sacred Heart Church Fundraising Committee, Geraldine Grealy (PRO) thanked everyone who supported this fundraising event.

“A special word of thanks to all the volunteers and ticket sellers, to Eimear and Andrew Reynolds (Choir Directors) and their magnificent singers who raised the roof on the night, to the members of the Roscommon Traditional Musicians group and friends, to Brendan Nugent for providing the enhanced acoustics and audio visual display, to Fr Kevin, PP, for his beautiful singing performance, to MC Eugene Murphy, to the local media for their generous coverage of the event, and finally to the Abbey Hotel and Gleeson’s for sponsoring the food and refreshments after the concert in the Parochial House”.

As of midweek, €51,454 has been raised for this fundraising project. Readers can follow Sacred Heart Church on Facebook and Twitter for updates. The first phase of the commencement of repairs on the church will begin in June.
