Music and Choral singing play a very important part in Abbey Community College and contribute to the social, wellbeing and spiritual development of each student. The school choir is now under the direction of Ms. Howley with assistance from Ms. Dowling, Ms. Lapthorne and Ms. Bolger. Students participate in a great variety of performances during the school year within the school itself. The choir’s opening performance is usually the opening year mass which celebrates our diverse and culture rich school. Other school events include various lunch time recitals to promote student confidence and performance skills, the Christmas Carol service and the end of year Award Ceremony. The Abbey choir also perform in events outside of the school. In November we were asked to perform at the opening of Winterval in Waterford. A fantastic rendition of “Purple Rain” was performed by Conor Stacey, Brian O Mara, Leo Walsh, Peter Leahy and Maciej Kaczmarski, accompanied by the Abbey Community Choir. In April our students will be getting ready for the Anniversary mass that will be taking place for the 150th anniversary of the Little Sisters of the Poor's arrival in Waterford City. Students will be joining forces with Good Counsel Junior School and a display of various choral pieces will be presented. Our students studying music therapy also put on a beautiful performance in the hub in December.

Weekly choir practice is held every Wednesday at 1.20pm in Rm 18.
