This evening, Tuesday 17th April, we had our annual Primary School & External Musical Evening, a highlight of St Angela’s music calendar. This lovely event is an opportunity for all our students of primary school age and students from external schools to perform a piece they have learned this year (the Ursuline Secondary School have their own separate musical evening next Wednesday 25th April – don’t miss it!).
This evening we were treated to an array of performances on piano, violin, flute, clarinet and harp. The Junior Choir and the Junior Traditional Group also participated. Congratulations to every student who got up to play – it’s no easy feat to perform in front of a big audience! Thanks also to all the parents and teachers for your support!
We are heading into a very busy period of the school year! Next week marks the beginning of our pre-Easter examination session. Exams with the Royal Irish Academy of Music will run from Monday 12th March to Friday 16th March, while exams with the Leinster School of Music will be happening on Friday 23rd March.
Coming soon after that will be two highlights of the music calendar: our annual musical evenings. The Primary School & External Musical Evening will take place on Tuesday 17th April at the Scoil Angela Primary School and the Secondary School Musical Evening will be the following Wednesday 25th April at the Ursuline Secondary School. We encourage your attendance on both of these special nights!
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!
With a busy calendar of events coming up, please take note of the following important dates:

St Angela’s Academy of Music opens today after the Christmas break. We hope all students are rested and rejuvenated for an eventful term ahead.
From now until Easter, and further to the summer break, the school will be extremely busy – there will be pre-Easter and post-Easter exam sessions with the RIAM and LSMD, as well as examinations with the Associated Board and Comhaltas. Much-anticipated events in the school calendar will include the Secondary School Musical Evening and the Primary School & External Musical Evening. Many of our students will also participate in Junior and Leaving Cert practicals as part of their state exams.
There will be plenty happening so do check back in for further updates!
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.
