Zion Vocal Ensemble Limerick are going to be hosting a Christmas Concert on Thursday, December 8, 2022 at 7.30pm.  Admission for the concert is free and there will be a raffle and bucket collection with all the proceeds going to Milford Care Centre. The concert will take place in the South Court Hotel. 

Established in 2015, Zion Vocal Ensemble is a community choir made up of members from right across Limerick City and County, of all ages and abilities. “We meet once a week, and have performed at weddings, funerals, charity and community events,” explained Musical Director Stephen Dunne.  

Stephen added, “ “This concert is dedicated to our dear friend and member, Breda McManus, whom we sadly lost in 2021. Singing expresses that which words cannot. We sing to show our emotions so that in times of joy it is uplifting while in times of sorrow, it can heal our pain. For most people in our choir singing has been a part of our lives for as long as we can remember and from a very early age, we are inclined to sing, even before we can speak.”

All are welcome for what is to be a fun and festive evening of entertainment with special guests, the fabulous Drumbanna Community Singers, some Christmas tunes with the wonderful Katerina O’Brien and Kaye Morrissey and Irish Folk and Ballads from Limerick’s own Treaty Celts.

Milford Care Centre is a voluntary, not-for-profit organisation and registered charity. It was first established by the Little Company of Mary Sisters in 1928 and now provides Specialist Palliative Care and Older Persons Services in the Midwest. Its Board of Directors and Management Team oversees its service delivery and fundraising activities.

All are welcome to the Zion Vocal Ensemble Limerick Concert for what is to be a fun and festive evening of entertainment.
