Garda Band feature in Ballsgrove concert
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.
