Choir

St. Leo's College Choir includes students from first year to sixth year. There is no audition and any student interested in singing in a choir is most welcome. Choir members learn good vocal technique with an emphasis on posture and breathing. Students learn to listen to each other, sing harmony, support a musical phrase and discover the joy of singing together. The choir rehearses on Monday and Wednesday lunchtimes with extra rehearsals before a school event or competition. This year the choir has performed at our Open Evening and will perform at the Christmas Carol Service, School Concerts, The Cork International Choral Festival and the Navan Choral Festival. The following is a sample of the choirs' achievements since its foundation in 1999:
