Project Music Management is delighted to present Christmas in Benildus 2 on the 20th December in the Parish of St. Joseph and Benildus, Newtown Road.

After the outstanding success of last year, a full house and standing ovation, the second edition of the series promises to bring you more of the same, with some hidden extras. The star studded cast of Niamh Murray, Valerie Leahy, Vanessa Whelan and Dominic McGorian will sing traditional Christmas songs, arias for Messiah, and some popular tunes to bring the Christmas spirit right into the heart of the community. The coming together of people from all around is the positive focus that Project Music Management and St. Joseph and Benildus centre this event on. This positivity is displayed by all the soloists, choirs, individuals involved in this years production. It is a community coming together in the true meaning of Christmas, enhanced by the beautiful singing of the Parish Choir under Joe O'Beirne, Edmund Rice Choral Society under Catherine Power and SOSPIRO Male Voice Ensemble from Kilkenny. Of course, joining this all together are international musicians Jacob Shaw Cello, David Lau Magnussen Piano/Organ and Anna Eoholm Violin, the first two coming fresh off the critical acclaimed Messiah in Waterford City recently.

Gerry Kane will deliver the readings, as this 'show' is unified throughout through word and music combined, seamlessly in a way that will leave you wanting more, whilst building excitement coming up to Christmas.

Tickets can be purchased at the Parish Centre from 11am to 1pm Monday to Friday, or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
