“Pitch Perfect” is a newly formatted 8 part series for TG4 where we select singers from local GAA Clubs all over Ireland who will become a Choir and realise their dream of performing Centre Stage at Croke Park for the All Ireland Football Final on the 3rd Sunday of September 2011.
Two Mentors accompanied by a Local Musical & GAA Legends will weed out their selection of Altos, Sopranos, Basses and Tenors and train these 30 Voices over an 8 week period and mould them into a Choir who will take their position at centre field and sing the two songs of the opposing counties at one of the greatest annual sporting occasions in Ireland in front of a packed house of 80,000 people.
They will represent clubs from all corners of Ireland as the GAA does from Strabane to Schull, Kiltimagh to Killester and Gorey to Gort. Our Mentors will monitor their journey to Croke Park as they train these voices and mould them into a choir that the spectators can join with as they raise their voices and sing the song of their county. It will be a moment to remember as the booklets hold the words, our singers lead the song and our spectators bring the park to life in song.
Here’s how you Apply …
Spoken Irish would be a bonus, but Irish is not essential.
