A Music Generation Laois/Laois Partnership Glee Club meets weekly on a Friday evening in the Portlaoise Youth Café. Young people aged between 12 and 18 have formed a Glee Club, and rehearse weekly with a dance and singing tutor. The Club’s current performance pieces include Jesse J’s ‘Pricetag’, Queen’s ‘Somebody to Love’ and the Glee/Hairspray hit ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat.’

Glee Club members work with renowned Soprano and Voice Tutor Denise Brennan from Arklow, to perfect their singing techniques, and Paula Byrne, a Dancer from Mountrath, who recently was awarded an MA in dance from the University of Limerick. The Portlaoise Club is currently open to new members.

Music Generation Laois/Laois Partnership also run Glee Clubs in Mountrath and Mountemellick – both the Mountrath and Mountmellick Glee Clubs have been a fantastic success with local young people, and the Mountrath Club will be open to new members from September. All 3 Glee Clubs – Portloaise, Mountrath and Mountmellick, are working towards a performance in the Dunamaise Theatre on Saturday the 8th of June. This concert will be hosted by the Glee Clubs, and will also feature performers from a variety of the Music Generation Laois programmes.

Glee Membership is €2 weekly. Contact Music Generation Laois on 057 8664078 or email info@musicgenerationlaois.ie for further information.
