CORus on the Late Late Show!
I was a HAPPY child who loved to sing - but in school at the tender age of nine my teacher told me "STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE - just mouth the words "! Well that was a bitter disappointment but I knew BIG GIRLS DON'T CRY so for the next 47 years I was no SONGBIRD .Instead ,foolishly, I perfected my impersonation of a goldfish - great lip movements .......no sound !
Then fast forward to Christmas 2013, in a friend’s HOME a chance conversation about singing I confessed " I STILL HAVENT FOUND WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR" . I explained to the assembled guests that I HAVE A DREAM - telling them of my burning desire to sing but that I realised that with my voice I was only CALIFORNIA DREAMIN'
Now what I didn't know was that I was talking to two of CÓRus's SILVER BELLS and ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, before I knew it I was singing with them and we were all ROCKING ROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE ! Everyone around me told me I should hold on to my singing dream. "NEVER LET HER SLIP AWAY” they said as they explained about CÓRUS, where ordinary voices make extraordinary music !
Well in that ONE MOMENT OF TIME I grew WINGS & within days UP I went to CÓRus in the Grainstore in Cabinteely Park.I asked our talented Leader Kevin to TAKE A CHANCE ON ME and met the most terrific bunch of people singing as 1st's, 2nd's and 3rd's .......and not a goldfish among them!
In CÓRus we work hard to get every word, every note and every movement right but we SURVIVE and have a lot of fun on our musical journeys every week .
Now, I know I am never going to become a soloist in the National Concert Hall - but neither do I want to be.NOTHING COMPARES to singing with friends, it makes you SHINE and RUMOUR HAS IT that it's good for your health too. So if you or someone you know fancies singing just drop in as a guest to your nearest CÓRus Choir Class www.CÓRus.ie and become a member of the most powerful HALLEUJAH CÓRus in Ireland ....but don't wait too long - as MISS OTIS REGRETS she didn't join sooner !
Who are CÓRus classes for?
CÓRus singing classes are open to men and women over 18yrs and appeals to those who love to sing but may not have the confidence to join a choir or sing in public.
In CÓRus we believe that we all have the right and the ability to sing. We want to give everyone the opportunity to learn to sing with like-minded people in a fun and relaxed environment.
People coming along to one of our classes do not have to audition or be able to read music.
CÓRus uses a unique and simple method of teaching singing, harmony and movement that is easily accessible to all.

During this process, you will be prompted to create a User Name (usually an email address) and a password of your choosing. This User Name and password is a requirement from September 2016 to access information in the Class Members section.
You can register for one term at a time or for all three terms. There are a number of payment options available – please refer to the payment page
How much does it
CÓRus offers fantastic value for money. Our classes run for an hour and a half and cost €110 for a ten week term – with three terms each year running from Sept – May. (Córus operates a sliding scale rate for new class members joining later in a term).
On receipt of a class fee, you will receive materials which include a CD and lyrics. Each class covers the same curriculum and you may attend one or more classes each week.
CÓRus also runs up to three joint rehearsals a year which are free to class members and offers additional vocal workshops at a subsidised rate.
CÓRus classes are also invited to participate at various events during the year which are fun and exciting to take part in.
Class members are invited but not obliged to take part in any activity outside of class.
Our Christmas Party workshop is coming up on October 22nd from 2pm-5pm in the Kingswood Suite, CityWest Hotel. This will provide a great opportunity for members from all our classes to get together for an afternoon of singing, dancing and the usual fun that coincides with the Joint Rehearsals. If you are new to CÓRus, it is a lovely way to meet other class members and to experience singing together within the larger group. Members are asked to bring a small fee of €3 to cover the cost of the workshop (tea\coffee\Christmas CD).
Online payments – Please note that CÓRus is moving to a fully online payment system. We have updated the e-commerce side of our website over the summer. Class members paying online will have to provide an email address and a password to set up an account on the website. You will receive a confirmation email with an order number – this must be written on the box provided on the payment envelope you will receive in class.
Those paying at class will be issued with a password via email that they can then change to one of their choice. This password will then be used to access the password protected “class members only” section containing the music and movement downloads as well as other information.
Any class members wishing to avail of the movement and music downloads will need an email address to access these from September 2016.
New CÓRus classes open regularly.
