Dear Parents,

The running order of the Maytime Melodies concerts is shown below. The length of the concert has been reduced this year and will start at 7.30pm and finish around 9.00pm. All children involved in the music programme will perform in either one of the smaller groups or as part of the larger orchestra/jazz band/brass ensembles. We hope that the shorter concert time will enable parents and children to stay for the duration of the concert. This will provide the younger children in particular with an opportunity to see how they can progress up through the music programme.

Tickets for the concerts will go on sale from Monday 22nd February and may 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 for the concerts tend to sell very quickly so you are advised to purchase your tickets early. Tickets are priced at €12 for adults and €7 for children. If you are in doubt which night your child is performing, please ask your child’s music teacher who will advise you.

This is our major fundraiser for the music programme and we appreciate the support that parents and families continue to show us. Further information on the concerts will issue nearer the concert dates.

Many Thanks
The Music Committee
