2nd Year student in Dublin Youth Orchestra

September 23, 2013

I am in the Dublin Youth Orchestra. I play the trombone and I enjoy it very much. We meet on the first Sunday of every month and we play loads of really fun music like 'Batman the Dark Knight Rises, Last Friday Night and a lot of Michael Jackson songs. It is really fun and I made lots of new friends. If you play an instrumTromboneent I would highly recommend auditioning.

Blood Brothers - a review

May 2, 2013

The TY musical opening night was 25th April. Congratulations are in order for all the cast of Blood Brothers. The evening was a huge success. The students involved were the most professional, co-operative group ready to work after school to rehearse - even over their holidays the whole class attended a rehearsal for the day. Now, that is commitment!

The positive reaction from the audience really encouraged students on the night to perform their best. Backstage, the props team were hard at work, while the actors exercised calm in preparation for their next moment on stage. The sets themselves were beautiful.

Thank you to all students on the night who volunteered their time: for lights and sound; to the cast involved in producing the programme, organising sponsors, and selling tickets; to the 5th Year Music students who accompanied myself and the cast on the night, and whom also performed on stage. Thanks also to the Mr. Murphy and the National School pupils who watched the morning performance.

The lead and support roles were outstanding. Certainly a red-letter day, with lots of memories for both myself and the students.
