Yesterday, Wednesday 29th March, was a special night in the school calendar as the Primary School & External Musical Evening took place in the Scoil Angela Primary School. Almost sixty students took part in this lovely evening of entertainment, ranging from those who only began learning last September to those who are climbing to the highest levels in their chosen instruments. There were a variety of performances on piano, harp, violin, cello, clarinet, trumpet, tin whistle and concertina. Massive congratulations to everyone who participated!
The Secondary School Musical Evening took place last Tuesday 21st March in the gym hall of the Ursuline Secondary School. It was a fantastic night’s entertainment, with performances from the Intermediate Orchestra, Senior Orchestra, First Year Choir, Second Year Choir, Cecilian Choir, Chamber Choir, Intermediate Traditional Group, Senior Traditional Group, and numerous soloists on a wide range of instruments, including piano, harp, violin, cello, flute, oboe and voice.
This annual musical evening is an opportunity for the students to demonstrate how much they have achieved in the past school year, and their hard work was evident in the extremely high standard of performance last Tuesday night. An event like this cannot be successful without the support of the music teachers, in particular Mary-Rose McNally (who accompanied many of the soloists and conducted the orchestras), Joan Butler (who led all the choirs), and Kathleen Nesbitt (who played with the traditional groups). Sincere thanks also to the principal of the Ursuline, Mary Butler, who introduced each of the acts throughout the concert.
Huge congratulations to everyone involved!
On Wednesday 20th April, St Angela’s hosted a musical evening for all primary school and external students who take music lessons with the Academy. It took place in the assembly hall of the Scoil Angela Primary School and was very well attended.
More than sixty students were involved in the concert, performing solos in piano, violin, cello, flute, clarinet and voice. There were also performances by the pre-instrumental group classes, Cara Awards Levels 1 and 2, and by the Junior Traditional Group. Congratulations to all the students who took part!
On Thursday 7th April, the Ursuline Secondary School held its annual musical evening, at which the secondary school students had the opportunity to show just how much they have achieved this year. The standard was extremely high and the audience was treated to a broad range of musical genres, including classical, traditional, musical theatre and music from the movies. There were solo performances in piano, voice, violin, cello, saxophone and harp, as well as a vocal duo and a piano-and-strings septet. On top of that, two orchestras, two traditional groups and four different choirs took to the stage.
Below are pictures of the acts who performed on the night. Huge congratulations to all involved!
First of all, a warm welcome back to students and staff after the Easter break. We hope everyone is well rested and prepared for the hectic final term of the school year!
