Acclaimed Paris-based choral and orchestral conductor and music therapist Martina Niernhaussen has been a frequent visitor to Cantóírí Choir over the past 10 years. This time we thought we’d share her!
In this 2-hour seminar, Martina will share her unique insights into unlocking the potential of your singing voice through an appreciation of vocal anatomy, breathing, posture, warm-ups, your singing resonators, singing and health.

Information from the Festival Organisers:
Greystones RFC are pleased to announce the event of the summer, on the 30th June 2012 in Dr Hickey Park, Greystones, with gates open from 12 noon.
“Voices by the Sea” is a day of music celebration, hosting many interesting styles of choirs and music of the highest calibre, performing for us, from many parts of Ireland.
Our first choir will be taking the “North Beach Stage” at 12.30, while on our 2nd ”South Beach Stage”, entertainment will be provided by a mix of eclectic vocal and instrumental entertainers, both stages in tandem.
As well as being a very important community event for the beautifully picturesque town of Greystones, nestling under the backdrop of the Co Wicklow hills, and overlooking two, quite glorious beaches, VBTS offers a wide variety of entertaining activity for locals and visitors alike, and for all family groups.
Along with this high standard of performers, there will also be a vast array of amusements, demonstrations, and very many attractions on offer for the day.
There will be a host of local sport clubs on hand to introduce you to the pleasures of what it is that they do, with showcases, demonstrations and fun challenges, so you never know, you may become their next sporting legend.
It is envisaged that this event will attract numerous visitors to Greystones for their first time, giving them the opportunity to sample and enjoy this fabulous event, and we look forward to welcoming new friends to our town centre.
Access is so easy! With our train and DART services arriving straight into the town centre station, there will be a shuttle service to and from the ground for the day, or perhaps you might like the 8/10 minute walk. Covered seating will be available on-site.
The N11 dual carriageway (exit 11) enters Greystones adjacent to the Rugby Club, and there will be ample car parking facilities provided around the venue.
