Performers Anna Maria Friman Henriksen, Catherine King and Berit Opheim of the renowned Norwegian vocal ensemble Trio Mediaeval visited St. Vincent’s Secondary School in Dundalk last week to present an inspirational choral workshop for members of the school’s chamber choir.
The session gave the girls the opportunity to learn some beautiful Norwegian folk songs and to explore new approaches to choral arranging.
Members of the school choir also attended the Trio’s evening concert at St Nicholas’ Church in the town, organised by the Louth Contemporary Music Society.
They were delighted when invited to join the performers in song for the opening of the second half of the programme.
“The girls of the chamber choir benefited enormously from the workshop while having good fun along the way, “ said St. Vincent’s music teacher, Stephen Hennessey.
“For me, it was a pleasure to experience such beautiful music making in my music room and for the girls to have the chance to broaden their musical horizons”.
Music Generation Louth is a music service for the county that aims to help children and young people access vocal and instrumental tuition in their local area.
