Wexford People - - NEWS -

HIGH achiev­ers in County Wex­ford School of Mu­sic have been for­mally ac­knowl­edged at an af­ter­noon con­cert they par­tic­i­pated in at their base in Sum­mer­hill, Wex­ford.

The con­cert fea­tured 18 of the school’s 29 stu­dents who achieved dis­tinc­tions in their re­spec­tive ex­ams for the last aca­demic term.

The event fea­tured an eclec­tic line-up of in­stru­ments with ev­ery­thing from voice, per­cus­sion and wood­wind to string in­stru­ments and pi­ano fea­tur­ing in the live per­for­mance.

The pro­gramme of mu­sic was also var­ied and show­cased many dif­fer­ent gen­res of mu­sic from clas­si­cal to jazz and pop. Sound­track tunes from some very fa­mous films were also in­cluded in the reper­toire on stage.

The school’s Prin­ci­pal and Mu­si­cal Di­rec­tor of the con­cert, David Creevy, pre­sented cer­tifi­cates to the stu­dents on the day in ac­knowl­edge­ment of their ex­cep­tional re­sults.

A spokesper­son in the school com­mented that this year’s re­sults were very good with around a quar­ter of the stu­dents re­ceiv­ing dis­tinc­tions while many oth­ers also re­ceived ex­cep­tion­ally high marks.
