Dundalk School of Music are launching a new choir group and music theatre company to cater for adults and children who are interesting in developing their singing talents.

This exciting development compliments its comprehensive music programme and further strengthens Dundalk School of Music's position as the leading Music School within the North East.

Patricia Duffy, Director of Dundalk School of Music (DSM) said 'We established DSM in the belief that the rich musical heritage of Dundalk and its surrounding areas meant there was a need for a dedicated Music School.

'With a growing student population and a record number of students receiving distinctions across all board examinations in 2013, the success of DSM has exceeded our expectations. To continue this success and to widen its appeal, we feel that now is the right time to introduce a Choir Group and Music Theatre Company within DSM.'

She said that they are delighted to have recruited Niamh Kerr from Rostrevor to head up the new choir group and musical theatre company.

'Niamh comes very highly recommended as she has vast experience and is fantastic with children,' continued Patricia.

Both the choir group and musical theatre company will be open to people of all ages, abilities and musical interests. Members will develop their musical talents in a fun and friendly environment, with participation and interaction at the heart of the learning experience. Singers will also have the opportunity to participate in a range of competitions and productions throughout 2014.

Dundalk School of Music, which is based in Blackthorn Business Park, has gone from strength to strength since its foundation four years ago.
