Dear Parents,

Every two years St Canice’s N.S Instrumental Music Programme presents the “Maytime Melodies” concerts at the Watergate Theatre. This year’s concerts will be held on Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th May. The concerts feature the 440 young musicians who participate in the music programme throughout the year. The children are aged between 4 and 12 years of age and play a variety of string, brass, wind, and percussion instruments. The success of the music programme is dependent on both assistance from the teachers and the many parents who volunteer their time as well as fundraising for the purchase and upkeep of the instrument bank.

Maytime Melodies is the major fundraiser for the music programme and every second year we ask our local businesses to support the programme by either advertising in the concert programme or donating/sponsoring a raffle prize. If you have a local business and would like to advertise in the Maytime Melodies programme, please contact Ciara Bracken 086 8176763 or Jane Harte 086 3895792 who will be happy to assist you. The rates for placing an advert are as follows:

€90 full page

€50 half page

€30 quarter page

A music programme of this size and nature requires significant ongoing funding. Your support of this unique, locally based programme is very much appreciated.
