This inaugural, non-auditioned chorus will enjoy rehearsing and performing various styles of music including classical, contemporary, Broadway, both accompanied and a cappella. It will be a common goal of the organization to create performances not only for the enjoyment of the audience, but also for the personal enrichment of each individual singer.

It is this drive to create music that has led the Leahy children to achieve so much, even at their young ages. Still all in elementary school, they are all accomplished multi-instrumentalists and released their first self-titled CD in December 2015.

Live performances are filled with the high-energy, infectious Celtic-based music people associate with the Leahy heritage. Fiddle, cello, French accordion, vocals, piano, and French-Canadian step-dancing all find a voice on stage. The Leahy children, so in love with what they do, enamor audiences and keep them constantly coming back for more.
