Fergus, our conductor, working with 5th and 6th classes.
We, in Kilcommon N.S., are delighted to be part of the Wicklow County Council Music Generation Programme. As part of this programme our 5th & 6th classes will get the opportunity of performing, as part of a choir of 500 pupils from Co. Wicklow, on the stage of the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Grand Canal, Dublin 2 on Sunday 23rd November. Ms. Amy Ryan, our choir teacher, has been preparing pupils since our return from the summer holidays.
Pupils will sing a piece entitled "The Bluebottle" which was composed for this event by Mr. Brian Irvine , who visited our senior classroom last year.
This is really a unique opportunity for our senior pupils to sing as part of a full choir, to sing with the RTE Symphony Orchestra and to perform on a stage in a theatre.
