Founded in 1986 with Mary McPhillips as its musical director and recently having celebrated its 25th anniversary, this well established choral group has over 55 members, with ages ranging from 20 years to those enjoying their active retirement!.


The group is highly regarded having won many accolades including:

*1st place in Sligo International Choral Festival and
*2nd place in the light music section at Cork International Festival.


Excellent ambassadors for the town of Ballina, The Moy Singers have performed for many dignitaries including:

*President Mary Robinson on her home turf in Ballina and
*President Mary McAleese in Aras an Uactaran.

Each year the group stages two major concerts, one in December "Carols by Candlelight" and a spring concert.

 

For more than a quarter centuary the choir has travelled on several musical trips abroad.

Austria - 1996 - the choir sang in the Schonbrunn Palace and the Benedictine Abbey in Durnstein.

France - 1998 - to the South of France, where singing in the cathedral in Monaco was a definite highlight.

USA - 2000 - the choir travelled to the United States and performed in Boston, Pittsfield and New York. The Seiji Osawa Hall in Tanglewood was as experience.

 

Italy - 2002 - brought the group to Northern Italy. One of the performances was held at the famous Villa Erba.

Slovenia - 2004 - a Ballina based company (Moy Valley Resources) with links in Slovenia, , provided the choir with venues for performances and tour guides. The visit to Lake Bled was spectacular.


Italy - 2006 - a return visit taking in Rome and Assisi. The concert at St. Isodore's in Rome, attended by both Irish and Polish Ambassadors, was truly something special.

Barcelona - 2008 - First trip to sunny Spain in the rain. Moy Singers performed at a beautifully sung mass in Santa Anna off Las Ramblas. The concert in the nearby seaside resort Sitges was a resounding success.

Germany - 2010 The trip to Munich  was enjoyed by all. Having sung one concert and one Mass we visited Dachau Concentration Camp, the Obersalsberg Documentation Centre, Mozart's birthplace, Neuschwanstein Castle and a few visits to Munich's most famous pub "The Hofbraushaust"

Kusadasi - Turkey - 2012 This action packed trip was really amazing. Our concert was enjoyed by a very appreciative audience and we entertained in the hotel on several occasions besides. There were tours to Pamukkale and Ismir but our visit to Ephesus and the Mass in Mary's house was the highlight of the tour.
