The biennial Maytime Melodies concert is our main fundraiser and we rely heavily upon all monies raised by the concert to buy the many things required for the programme. If you can help out in any way by buying a concert ticket, becoming a “Friend of Maytime Melodies” or donating a raffle prize, we would be extremely grateful.

Concert Tickets

The tickets for the concerts are selling out fast. Tickets for the concerts can only be purchased from the Watergate Theatre.  Tickets cannot be purchased from the school or from music committee members, and all queries, ticket returns etc should be directed to the Watergate Theatre. Tickets are priced at €12 for adults and €7 for children.  Note re Percussion Groups: If you are in doubt which night your child is performing, please ask your child’s music teacher who will advise you.

Friends of Maytime Melodies

Traditionally, people involved in businesses locally have been given the opportunity to support the programme by advertising in the Maytime Melodies Programme. Following a suggestion by some parents, it was decided to extend this facility to all parents/guardians of children involved in the programme who may wish to be associated with and support the programme by becoming “Friends of Maytime Melodies”. The names of all “Friends” will be published in our Concert programme. If you would like to become a Maytime Melodies Friend, please submit a cheque for €20 made payable to St Canices Instrumental Music Programme by Friday 6th May 2016.

Raffle Prizes

Donations of raffle prizes would be extremely welcome! If you would like to donate a raffle prize, please contact one of the committee members who will be happy to assist you. The list of committee members is on the music website.

Finally, the children have been working really hard to ensure that you enjoy our concerts and I’m sure that you will be immensely proud of them on the night. We appreciate the support that parents and families continue to show us and we look forward to two great nights of music making!

Many Thanks

The Music Committee
