Cor Mhagh Ealla is a secular 4-part choir of approximately 47 members, established in September 2001 on the initiative of a member of Arts Alliance Mallow. Since then the choir has been building its repertoire and sings a mixture of music to suit all tastes – from Irish traditional and early sacred music to Billy Joel, from Spirituals to Swing! Cor Mhagh Ealla participaties regularly in choral festivals and competitions at home and abroad including Cork International Choral Festival, Limerick Festival of Church Music, Feis Maitiu, Midleton Choral Festival and A.I.M.S. Festival, New Ross, and has received critical acclaim and has been placed in several competitions. While members take the business of singing very seriously they are equally determined to enjoy themselves. The choir has a warm and friendly atmosphere and its social agenda is very important.
The choir meets every Tuesday night at 8 pm in the Mercy Centre Mallow. New members are welcome and are taken on in January and September. If you’re interested in joining, please feel free to drop in any Tuesday night and have a listen.
