COOKSTOWN Youth Choir’s concert in collaboration with international soprano, Margaret Keys was a roaring success with concert-goers.
The 48 members of the Youth Choir performed a selection of music at the Burnavon Theatre, encompassing various styles including songs from the shows, Irish traditional and popular Christmas hits. Many of these pieces have been recorded on their debut charity CD ‘Voices Together’, which can be purchased from Tesco, Orritor Road, Cookstown.
One of the highlights of the night was a performance of ‘Do-Re-Mi’ from ‘The Sound of Music’, when seven choir members had the wonderful opportunity to perform with Margaret Keys.
Instrumentalist for the evening, thirteen year-old Ian Brown, captivated the audience with his trumpet rendition of ‘Walking in the Air’.
On her first visit to Cookstown, Margaret Keys captured the hearts of the enthusiastic audience with her charm and sublime singing. Having treaded the boards in Broadway, Margaret proved to the Cookstown audience that she has true star quality.
The Revd Dr J Isaac Thompson, President of Cookstown Rotary Club, passes his thanks to everyone involved with the show - the Choir members, Conductor Meta Bell, accompanist Norma Black and guest soprano Margaret Keys.
He also acknowledged the support of Cookstown District Council. The proceeds of the evening will be donated to Cookstown Rotary Club charities.
