With 2020 the year of our Global Pandemic and Covid-19 restrictions we had to hold our annual Christmas Concert on zoom as a virtual concert. We recorded all videos of each individual groups performing little pieces to showcase what the had been learning. We also recorded individual parts for the well known piece "It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas" and then amalgamated them to make one piece. The kids loved being part of this piece, unfortunately we couldn't all perform together so this is the best we can do in the current situation. You can see our concert by clicking on the link below

End of Year Summer Concert
This year our End of year concert will be dedicated to a 22-month-old girl called Milly Byrne. Milly’s Mammy Charlene is a former member of our orchestra. In March, Milly fell seriously ill and suffered heart failure. She is currently in the UK waiting on a heart transplant. We are going to set up a Paypal fund (Milly’s Fund) where all donations will go to support Milly & her family at this difficult time. Donations are completely optional and any donations big or small will be greatly appreciated! 🎶🎼❤️
The concert will be on Zoom - Here is link

Ode to Joy Project
We were delighted to be part of a nationwide performance in tribute to our Frontline Workers on European Music Day on Sunday, 21 June. We performed in St. Kilian's Church car park with all our family & friends from the parish. We had over 40 members ranging from our Mini Musician classes up to our Senior Orchestra. The sun shone and we had a lovely evening performing to an audience again after months of lockdown.
