The Nas na Ri Singers wish to thank all the music lovers who supported their Christmas concert. Despite severe weather and the ensuing postponement of their concert the choir donated €1800 to the local branch of The Society of St. Vincent de Paul. This was accepted on behalf of the society by Mrs. Kate Conway.

In January The Nas na Ri Singers were among 170 musicians and singers at a special event in the Moat Theatre to mark the presentation of instruments from the Kildare Music instrument Bank. The choir was the happy recipient of a keyboard and amplifier from the Kildare Instrument Bank coordinated by Kildare Arts in Context Ltd.

On Good Friday the Nas na Ri Singers performed The Crucifixion by Stainer in the Church of Our Lady and St. David Naas. Proceeds from this performance will benefit The Christians of The Holy Land. We wish to thank all our loyal followers for their continued support and are looking forward to our 40th Anniversary in 2012.
