After a performance by some orchestra members on the John Murray show on RTE Radio 1, the orchestra were invited to Dublin to perform at the Catholic Primary Schools Management Association Conference. What an honour to be asked to provide the musical entertainment for one of the major educational events of the year. The orchestra astounded the “movers and shakers” of the education world and great tributes were paid to Regina and Ruth O’Leary and all teachers, parents, the board of management and pupils involved. The performance established national recognition for the programme. The evening was started with stunning performances by five of our quartets followed by something to eat for our hungry musicians and finished with a fantastic performance from our Senior Orchestra.
