A well established community chorus, the choir has performed at community festivals and events in the Galway area. Including regularly at Galway Fringe Festival, Africa Day, Spirit of Voice, The Colours Festival.

Sonke is a unique experience for participants and audience as we encourage a diverse and friendly membership which is representative and inclusive of contrasting abilities, ages and cultures.

Sonke takes advantage of this diversity and regularly offers interactive workshops and performances to Galway community groups ranging from teenagers to the elderly and is very active in promoting and participating in diversity and inclusion in Galway City.

Music from many cultures around the world is sung with great heart and in harmony, beginners pick things up quickly in the relaxed and friendly atmosphere that we all enjoy. The choir learns things mainly by ear and members benefit from a voice workshop/informal voice training session and warm-up before rehearsals. There is no audition needed and all are welcome to come and develop their vocal skills with us, our members include beginners and accomplished singers.

Sonke regularly performs gigs and concerts in and around Galway, often with professional performers who are members of the choir. Sonke released a CD called "Sonke!" and Friends, which you can order here by leaving us a message, cost is 5 Euros. You can listen on the OUR MUSIC page

Since repertoire is from all over the World (World Music), in original languages, people from all over the world are encouraged to come to the choir, including asylum seekers, imigrants, overseas visitors and refugees. This enriches our repertoire continually with a wealth of songs from our members. We have a strong core of Native Irish members who have taught us Gaelic songs included in our repertoire.

We meet at The Methodist church, Victoria Place, Eyre Square every Tuesday at 7pm.
All are welcome (no audition necessary).7:00 till 9:00pm,9 Euros, 5 Euros concessions (Asylum seekers free) We have greatly reduced fees for whole term prices. Please see the rest of the site site for more information, or email me at
Please arrive on time so you can be involved in the warm-ups at the start. These warm-ups help train your voice and keep it healthy.

Please bring a notebook to write song lyrics in to. Song lyrics, music files, and videos available in the "files" section. Also see our photos section and Our Music page

There' s a 15 minute break half way through the rehearsal session, socialising is always encouraged and taken seriously! But there is a serious focus on singing and improving our constantly expanding repertoire.

We want you to make friends, get better and more confident at singing, and most of all enjoy yourself! And to share the experience with audiences, workshop participants and other choir members. We hope that if you enjoy yourself while you're singing your world will seem a better place!
