AIMS Seminars


EMS members attended the AIMS Seminar in Killarney every year to support our nominated members and nominated members from our sister societies across County Wexford.

Our AIMS Award Winners & Nominees

Enniscorthy Musical Society is a proud member fo The Association of Irish Musical Societies (AIMS). The Adjudication & Awards Scheme is one of the most popular AIMS activities. The scheme is designed to constantly raise standards and push forward musical theatre in Ireland. Under this scheme, an adjudicator attends each participating show and provides a written critique.

At the end of each musical season in May, the adjudicator then draws up nominations for the awards based on the shows they have seen. In true Oscar fashion, the nominations cover all aspect of a performance, from Best Actor and Actress to Best Stage Management, Best Director to Best Overall Show etc., The nominations are then announced at a gala ceremony.

The AIMS Awards Weekend is celebrated annually in June. The highlight of this weekend is the announcement of the award winners in the Adjudication & Awards Scheme.

The Awards Weekend is attended by almost 1000 people, including members of EMS and other sister societies across County Wexford, and is the largest event of its kind held in Ireland. It brings together people who have a common love of musical theatre and provides a great social opportunity for members from different societies to come together.
