Sixty-two pupils and staff members 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 an Abba Medley, Pirates of the Carribbean, Belfast Child, Nothing Compares to You and You're the Voice to name but a few were performed on the day.
This is the fourth 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!
