‘The Choir, based in Jordanstown, Co.Antrim, was formed in 1970 ... The choir’s name is taken from the “new town” of Newtownabbey, created in 1958, and choir rehearsals have been held in the church hall at St Patrick’s Church of Ireland in Jordanstown, Newtownabbey for over 40 years. The Abbey Singers continue to maintain strong relationships with the many concert venues and communities across the Newtownabbey, Carrickfergus, Larne and Greater Belfast area.’

They competed in all the usual band competitions with some success until 1951 when the decision was taken to change to brass, as this was a cheaper option, rather than purchasing a new set of flutes!! ...'
