Four Limerick choirs, under the direction of Máire Keary-Scanlon, invite you to join them for ‘Goodnight Moon’, an evening of beautiful music on Thursday, December 8, 2022 at 8pm in aid of Irish Motor Neuron Disease Association (IMNDA). Cantette Children’s Choir, Limerick Chamber Choir, Limerick Youth Choir and Seóda will come together to perform at the Limerick School of Art and Design (LSAD), Clare Street. Soloists include Limerick’s own Claire Heffernan, Emma Downes, and Eóin Scanlon.
Máire Keary-Scanlon, Director of the choir, holds a Master of Music Performance in Conducting from Trinity College and is well known in Irish musical circles as an accomplished vocal tutor and choral director. She has taught at the Irish World Academy for 6 years, focusing on vocal technique and vocal ensemble.
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive neurological condition that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching the muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting.
MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. However, not all symptoms necessarily happen to everyone and it is unlikely they will all develop at the same time, or in any specific order.
The IMNDA works to support people with Motor Neurone Disease, their families, and carers through raising awareness, along with providing home and professional support. They fight to allow people with the disease to live as independently as possible, giving those suffering from the disease a voice. They hope that one day Motor Neurone Disease will be eradicated.
Admission for Goodnight Moon is free, with donations accepted online and on the door in aid of the Irish Motor Neuron Disease Association. Limited tickets are available so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.
