Forty-five pupils from Thomastown NS formed part of the Peace Proms choir, which comprised of over one thousand singers on the day. The pupils got the chance to perform with the incredible Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland and talented singers and musicians such as Lauren Murphy (vocal soloist), Conal Duffy (uilleann piper), Richie Dunne (violinist), Grahame Harris (pipe major), the New Ross Pipe band as well as Highland and Irish dancers. The performance was led by the world-renowned conductor, Greg Beardsell.
Many traditional, classic and modern songs and pieces of music; such as Hall of Fame, Lord of the Dance, Amazing Grace, I'm a Believer and You're the Voice to name but a few; were performed on the day.
To cap off an already fantastic day, the pupils were delighted to get the opportunity to meet with Greg Beardsell after the concert and have a photo a taken with him. One of our music enthusiasts, Josh, even got the chance to chat with Noah, the guitarist with the orchestra and play a few chords on his guitar!
This is the third time that the school has performed in the Peace Proms and we hope to have many more opportunities in the future to take part in such a brilliant event!
