Music Matters

at Coláiste Mhuire

A new music room was made available for music performance and Drama in the basement of the Hevey building in 2016. This room was of great benefit to us when we were rehearsing for the Christmas Carol service. This year our Christmas Carol Service was held for the first time in the School Gym. The Gym was transformed with a temporary stage, curtains lighting and sound. Our Christmas Carol Service Choir, School Band and Trad Group performed a selection of our favourite Christmas Carols and songs. Christmas also saw our musicians perform at the Market Square for the Mullingar Chamber of Commerce.

Our Trad Group and soloists are busy preparing for the Interschools Music Festival, and for our recital for Seachtain na Gaeilge, which we are planning to have in Arás an Mhuilinn.
