Bernadette Manning RIP
It is with great sadness that we share the news that on Saturday 26th May, Bernadette Manning passed away in Dublin from breast cancer.
Bernadette was a founder director of the Sing Out Association of UK and Irish Choirs in 2000 which was the foundation stone of the development of the UK and Ireland Choirs groups and strong relationships.
Bernadette played a part in the international LGBT+ family and was a board member of Legato (2013-2017) as well as Chair of Various Voices Dublin 2014. Bernadette sang soprano with Gloria DLGC for many years in Dublin and was a former Chair of the choir.
Her work and dedication to the LGBT+ choral movement was also acknowledged at Various Voices Munich earlier this month.
It’s significant that she died on the day that Ireland voted to repeal the 8th- she’ll be raising a glass herself to this historic day.
Bernadette is survived by her wife Ann and sons Conor and Daragh. May she Rest In Peace.

At the recent Legato Annual Meeting 2016 we found that communication and PR of Legato can be improved. A simple and fast way to achieve this goal is to make a better use of the possibilities that social media offer.
