An Evening of Music

 

Yesterday evening at 6.30pm, parents/guardians and friends of St Colman's gathered in St Paul's Church for an evening of music performed by the talented musicians of the school. The school choir and orchestra have performed on numerous occasions during the school year and have built up quite a repertoire. They chose their favourite and most polished pieces for the very appreciative audience.

The choir sang 'For the Beauty of the Earth' by John Rutter, 'Can you Feel the Love Tonight' from the much loved movie 'The Lion King' and Pharrell Williams toe-tapping tune of 2014 'Happy', all under the careful guidance of Ms Aisling Mulcair & Ms Helen Hasset.

With their conductor, Ms Emer Morris, the orchestra played 'Oh When the Saints go Marching in' made famous by the wonderful Louis Armstrong back in 1938, 'Pachelbel's Canon' by German composer Johann Pachelbel and Coldplay's 'Viva la Vida'.

Isabel, Naomi, Tanya and Mark played violin solos together with Ms Morris. Students, who receive tuition in trumpet and flute from Mr Gerry Lacey and Mr Bob Batty respectively, also played on the night.

The musical talent in St Colman's is without doubt tremendous and in abundance, Congratulations to everyone who was involved in this entertaining end of year performance!
