Music Generation Louth’s choral programme Let’s Sing 2014 finished on a high note this year with a spectacular concert at An Tain Theatre with students from St Peter’s National School Dromiskin, Joseph’s and St Malachy’s Boys’ National Schools, Dundalk.
Classes from each school had been preparing for the concert since January with Music Generation Louth’s choral tutor Clare McEvoy.
The children formed a 100 strong choir to perform a selection of songs from around in the world accompanied by the Music Generation Louth Ensemble.
An Tain was packed with family members and friends who came along to support the event and enjoy the great music.
The evening was compered by well-known local singer songwriter Stewart Agnew, also a member of the Music Generation Louth team of tutors. The Dundalk performance is one of four concerts that take place this month as part of the Let’s Sing programme.
Children from three schools in Ardee also gave a beautiful performance of the same programme at the Ardee Parish Centre. Preparations are underway in six schools for concerts in Carlingford and Drogheda.
Let’s Sing forms part of a wide portfolio of music education projects for children and young people delivered by Music Generation Louth throughout the year.
