The Rynn Singers

The twenty-nine members of the acclaimed Rynn Singers have released their first CD (November 2002).  Last year, the choir won the Inter-School Choir Competition at Wesleyan College, Dublin. Several members are also members of the local Millennium Choir and will be on a tour to Rome at the end of October.  The Rynn Singers were founded in 1991.  Over the years the Rynn Singers have embraced and captivated audiences in ever widening circles of harmony. Their name has become widely known and their melodious song widely acclaimed in choral circles nationally. This CD celebrates the talent and dedication of the Rynn Singers and their mentors, and offers the promise of renowned voices of the future.

As well as being a lasting memento of the choir, the CD will raise funds for the North-West Hospice in Sligo. The CD costs €10 and is available from local outlets and from members of the choir.
