Come along and experience a joyful festive evening of music and fun.

High Hopes Choir:
This choir made up of homeless people is the brain child of former RTE Concert Orchestra’s principal conductor David Brophy. His idea behind it was to give homeless people a voice and help them change the public’s perception of what it means to be homeless. It worked. RTE made a heart-moving documentary that brought the reality of homelessness to viewers. Members gained a sense of self-confidence and it allowed them to believe in themselves. Many are back in school or college now and are no longer on the streets. Music changed their lives.

Carlow Ukulele Players:
Carlow Ukulele Players have performed at many festivals and events, including Borris Festival of Writing and Ideas, Ducketts Grove Christmas Fair, St Patricks Day Festival and Visual Carlow where they collaborated with The Aspiro Choir for Culture night.
Carlow Ukulele Players are all about fun, upbeat performances where audience participation is actively encouraged!

MC on the night will be Patricia Hutton of the Carlow Ukulele Players and proceeds are going to The High Hopes Choir.
