The Phillips Academy Chamber Orchestra and Choir from Massachusetts, USA visited Glendalough and held a special lunchtime performance in St. Kevin's Church, Glendalough.
The Phillips Academy, established in 1778, is a celebrated residential secondary school with a reputation for academic excellence and a strong arts tradition. A selection of their vocal, orchestral, chamber and wind ensembles came together for this special performance.
The event was extremely well supported by pupils from Scoil Chaoimhin Naofa and the local community with standing room only available in the church. The orchestra were joined by two local violinists from the school, Emily Gibbons and Niamh Lynham and it was a great opportunity for the children in the locality to see an orchestra ' up close' and to be part of the performance.
The group received a standing ovation and especially for the occasion the Orchestra and Choir sang their first public performance of “Molly Malone”. It was a truly great event enjoyed by all.
MAGIC OF THE MUSICALS
It was great to see so many young talented people taking part in Roundwood Variety Group's Magic of the Musical performances earlier this month in the Brockagh Centre. It was well supported by young and old from the wider locality and the audience joined in with many of the well known songs. Well done to the Roundwood Variety Group who worked so hard to prepare for the show.
