'We aim to present all of our concerts in a relaxed format, whilst still maintaining the highest artistic standards. If you attend a Newry Chamber Music concert you are guaranteed a great evening's entertainment. Our artists will introduce themselves and more importantly will talk about the music they are going to play, giving you some background about the composer, when the work was written, its historical context and what to listen out for. We like to feel connected to our audience so that we can all experience the joy of music making together.'

‘A community choir based in Downpatrick Co Down Northern Ireland. We sing for our own enjoyment and perform to raise funds for charity ... The Choir was formed in May 2007 and developed out of The Singers' Circle night class at Down Arts Centre ... The ethos of the choir is inclusive - there is no audition to join but choir members are required to make a specified level of commitment in terms of attendance at classes, practices and performances. The underlying principles under which we operate are informed by the Natural Voice Network (NVN). Our motto is the popular Zimbabwean proverb “If you can walk you can dance, if you can talk you can sing!”.’
