The Royal Irish Academy of Music held its annual Gala High Achievers Concert last Wednesday 7th December and we are delighted to say that the Ursuline Secondary School’s Chamber Choir was one of the performers on the day. In the academic year 2015-2016, over 40,000 musicians took part in the RIAM Local Centre examinations. 300 were deemed High Achievers and a selection of these performed in regional concerts around the 32 counties in October and November of this year. Only 10 were chosen to participate in last Wednesday’s Gala Concert at the Royal Irish Academy in Dublin, therefore it was a fantastic achievement on the part of the Chamber Choir to have been selected for performance. Very well done!
We would also like to say congratulations to all students involved in the recent music examinations here at St Angela’s in November. The standard was very high, with many distinctions, and we hope you were pleased with your results.
Finally, we extend warmest wishes to all students, parents and staff as we wind down for the Christmas break. The school will reopen on Monday 9th January 2017. We bid everyone a peaceful Christmas and all the very best for the New Year!
