"If the thought of singing in public scared me, then the idea of singing with other singers terrified me. What a revelation then to find the RISE choir. A welcoming, inspiring space to have fun, grow, and sing some uplifting contemporary songs with a wonderful bunch of people"
Adam Cowan - Student, Galway
"I love, love, love Thursday nights! Singing uplifting songs with beautiful people, it's fun and pure heart energy! Personally I've grown from someone who almost left such was the level of terror to singing a solo at a public performance! The effects of singing translate to other areas of life. If you want change, growth and lots of laughs look no further!"
Laura O'Connor - Choir Member, Galway
