Notice Received: Galway Choirs Perform Memorial Concert for Monica Narciandi Junco

Galway Choral Association, Galway Gospel Choir and Ignite Gospel Choir will perform a memorial concert for Monica Narciandi Junco, who was a member of all three choirs. The concert will be held in St. Nicholas’ Collegiate Church on Saturday June 9th at 8pm. 

A native of Gijon in the Northern Spanish province of Asturias, Monica came to Ireland eleven years ago and worked as a main telephonist for the Revenue Commissioners and before with the Department of Social Welfare and the Western Health Board Galway.

“It was one of Monica’s dearest wishes that all three choirs of which she was a member would perform together. Tragically the first time that we performed together was at her funeral service last October. We now come together again, to celebrate Monica’s life on the occasion of what would have been her 40th Birthday and to raise funds for the National Council for the Blind Galway,” said Michael O’Hare chairperson of the Galway Choral Association.

Tickets €10 ( €8 concessions) are on sale at Opus 11, High Street, Galway ( 091 500 300)
and the National Council for the Blind, 9a, St. Francis Street Galway (091 564 926) and on the door.
