The Internationally renowned Donaghadee Male Voice Choir, along with the Barnburgh Village Singers ladies’ choir will be presenting an evening of mixed choral music. The long-standing friendship between these two choirs has flourished for many years, and results from a chance meeting between the Irish choir and a Yorkshire choir some forty years ago at Ilkley Music Festival.
