Garda Band fea­ture in Balls­grove con­cert

Drogheda Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE Church of the Holy Fam­ily will be the venue for what prom­ises to be a spec­tac­u­lar con­cert head­lined by the Garda Band on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 11.

It will cer­tainly be an all-star event as it will also fea­ture top tenor, Eu­gene Ginty, and star so­prano, Amie Dyer.

And the Holy Fam­ily youth choir will also be ap­pear­ing at their home church where they sing at Masses every week.

The church con­cert, staged thanks to the gen­eros­ity of Fr David Bradley, prom­ises a top­class night of mu­sic and song.

Once again, the con­cert will sup­port the fund for the Drogheda branch of the Alzheimer So­ci­ety in its bid to build a new day­care cen­tre in the town.

The Garda Band, un­der the ba­ton of Supt Pat Kenny, is one of the coun­try’s most in-de­mand mu­si­cal at­trac­tions and the branch is de­lighted to have them com­ing to Drogheda again.

Eu­gene and Amie fea­tured to­gether for the first time at the cor­re­spond­ing event a year ago and en­thralled the au­di­ence with a mag­nif­i­cent se­lec­tion.

Now, the ex­cit­ing prospect of hav­ing both on the same bill again will en­sure that, as well as fea­tur­ing sep­a­rately, they will be singing sev­eral duets.

The Holy Fam­ily Youth Choir also made a big im­pres­sion on the au­di­ence on that oc­ca­sion and their reap­pear­ance will be much an­tic­i­pated.

Pa­trons are asked to note that the con­cert will be­gin at 7.30pm on Thurs­day week.

Tick­ets, priced at Eur15, are now on sale and are avail­able at the Holy Fam­ily church in Balls­grove and af­ter all the masses there.

Chil­dren un­der-14 years of age will be ad­mit­ted free.
