A beautiful Christmas celebration of music and liturgy is taking place in Dungannon next weekend.

If that’s not enough to make you want to come along, the Musical Director for the night is the acclaimed Wilson Shields who will conduct a full band as well excellent performances from both Edendork St Malachy’s Youth Choir alongside guest artists Cathy McLernon and renowned Soprano Gemma Prince.

It promises to be a night of festive celebration of liturgical song and music in the beautiful candlelit surroundings of St Patrick’s Dungannon, certainly an evening not to be missed.
