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!
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!

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!
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!
Please note two very important dates on the music school calendar. The Ursuline Secondary School musical evening is taking place this Thursday 7th April at 7:30pm in the Ursuline’s sports complex. All are welcome – entry is €5 per person or €10 per family. On the night, the audience will be treated to a wide variety of acts, including performances from the Chamber Choir, Cecilian Choir, Intermediate and Senior Orchestras, and Intermediate and Senior Traditional Groups, as well as soloists in a range of instruments, from piano and voice to violin, flute, harp and more. This is a night of guaranteed entertainment and not to be missed!
St Angela’s will also be hosting a musical evening for primary school and external students on Wednesday 20th April. It starts at 7pm and will take place in the assembly hall of the Scoil Angela Primary School. For many of our younger learners, this is their first time to perform in front of an audience. In addition to the soloists, there will be group performances by the students from the Cara Awards and the Junior Traditional Group.
These concerts are a culmination of the students’ hard work throughout the year. We do hope to see you there!
