Introduction by Fr Liam, P.P. Moderator.

An introduction to our Music Ministry by our Parish Priest Fr Liam.
"St. Augustine says that "he who sings to God prays twice". This gives some insight into the importance of music in our Liturgy and the importance of the Music Ministry in our Parish. We are grateful to all who contribute both their time and talents to the Music Ministry which adds so much to our Liturgical celebrations".


St John's Gospel Choir

We are taking a break for the summer and we will return, refreshed & in good voice in September next.
Thank you so much for your continued support to our Masses over the last 9 months.

Our Gospel Choir was set up in September 2009 and now has over 70 members

While we have more than enough singers for the choir (there is a waiting list for people wishing
to join us), we are still looking for musicians over 18 years of age and
we would be delighted if you would contact us through the Parish Office, Tel:4994203.

Ballinteer Male Voice Choir

Celebrating 20 years of male voice choral singing at home and abroad.

From 25th to 29th October 2014, to celebrate our jubilee year, BMVC traveled to Italy where we performed in Florence (together with Coro La Martinella, the wonderful Florentine choir that received a standing ovation in Ballinteer last May) and in Rome, where we performed in the International Pontifical College, Maria Mater Ecclesiae and in the Pontifical Irish College at the 10am Sunday Mass.

The Ballinteer Male Voice Choir usually sing in our Church on Good Friday and on Christmas Day and other selected dates which will be announced in advance.

Since its foundation the Ballinteer Male Voice Choir has developed a reputation for excellence in its performances at home and abroad, performing in a great variety of venues and events including many National competitions at which they achieved notable success. There are currently 30 members in the Choir many of whom are there since its foundation.

On 25th May 2013, BMVC hosted its third International Festival which featured choirs from Florence, Italy (Coro La Martinella), Angers, France (Le Choeur d’Hommes d’Anjou) and Dublin, Baldonnel MVC. It was our largest festival to date, with a full church audience and a wonderful evening's entertainment was had by all.
Our sincere thanks to all who supported the Concert and to all who came on the night.

On 28 July 2013, BMVC welcomed Dovre, a male voice choir from Norway to Ballinteer in its centenary year. BMVC has received an invitation to visit Denmark in September 2013 from Mandskoret, Sonderborg, with whom it performed in St John’s GAA Club in September 2011 marking its 90th anniversary.
