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.

Well done to the Round­wood Va­ri­ety Group who worked so hard to pre­pare for the show.

Two nuns at the Sis­ters of Per­pet­ual Sewing have been se­cretly mak­ing wine to keep the con­vent's doors open, but is their se­cret about to be un­cov­ered? Are Paul and Sally re­ally spies from Rome sent to shut the con­vent down? Wine and se­crets are in­evitably spilled as ev­ery­one tries to pre­serve the con­vent and re­con­nect with lost loves.
