Our Senior School Choir accompanied The Three Tenors Ireland at our local Solstice Arts Centre on Friday 10th of February 2017. The school choir, on only it’s third public performance, looked completely at ease as they performed confidently on the big stage with Derek, Dominic and Shane who perform up to 100 concerts annually in such prestigious venues as the National Concert Hall in Dublin, Cork Opera House, Killarney INEC and Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin and have been interviewed live on air by both BBC and RTE Radio One and most recently on TV3 Ireland. The choir accompanied the tenors for the chorus of ‘Home From the Sea’ as well as giving their own rousing renditions of ‘When I Grow Up’ from Matilda- The Musical and ‘Firework’ by Katy Perry. Our choir co-ordinator Ms Eimear Donnelly deserves special mention for preparing the children for the big event. We hope this was a night the children will never forget.
The choir will perform next at The National Basketball Arena in Tallaght for Corfhéile na Scoileanna on Tuesday 07.03.2017. We are looking forward to seeing them on the big stage again.
