BMC
CHOIR

Blessington Millennium Choir was founded as an ecumenical initiative to celebrate the Christian Millennium Year 2000 in Blessington. Under the direction of Yvonne O'Conor the choir boasts between forty and fifty voices of all ages, Sopranos, Altos, Tenors and Basses.  We sing for our own pleasure and occasionally have joined with other choirs.  We sing to celebrate important occasions like Christmas and Easter and to raise much needed funds for local and national charities.  We have also performed abroad on two occasions in the past three years.  Our practices take place in the Kare Centre, Blessington on Tuesday nights and new members are always welcome!
