Portlaoise Gospel Choir
The Portlaoise Gospel Choir has been together for over six years. In that time, they have come to be one of the most active groups in the community, becoming known for their vibrant performances and raising much needed funds for different charities.
The choir began performing as a mass choir in St Peter and Paul’s Church in Portlaoise. Since then, it has grown under the musical direction of Marji Maxwell to become a regular at many different events and celebrations.
All age groups are represented in the choir, with a span of over fifty years from the youngest member to the oldest member. There are more than fifty people in the choir at present, but new singers are always welcome to join, no matter what age or faith.
The Portlaoise Gospel Choir’s motto is “Faith, Fun and Friendship’ and they always try to guarantee all three for everyone, both within the choir and in the audience.
