On Sunday 2nd February 3rd and 4th class spent a wonderful evening in Citywest participating in the Peace Proms. We were part of the 1000 strong choir that belted out the tunes accompanied by the magnificent Cross Border Orchestra Ireland.
Under conductor Gearóid Grant singers and musicians delighted the audience with a wide selection of music from Elvis’ ‘Hound Dog’ to Katy Perry’s ‘Firework’ from the choir and Pirates of the Carribean to Riverdance and Sing Sing Sing from the orchestra. As if that wasn’t enough we also heard music from the Northern Irish branch of the Scottish Pipe Band and were treated to music from tenor Emmanuel Lawlor, violinist Patricia Tracy and uillean piper Patrick Martin.
What a wonderful experience for everyone involved. Well worth the sleepy heads the next morning! A huge thank you to all the parents who delivered children for the rehearsal and attended the concert and to the teachers who came along and supported us.
