Clontempo Choir was formed early this year and is under the musical direction of Fearghal O'Connor.
The choir sings all genres including classical, contemporary and sacred music. Clontempo is now looking for new members, especially male tenors and bass vocalists, but would welcome all new members.
The choir will be running a choral workshop in Clonmel on Saturday morning, 27th May from 10.30 to 12.30.
Further details will be available on Clontempo's Facebook page.
