A Gala Concert will be held in IT Sligo on Saturday April 23 at 8pm to raise funds for NW MS Therapy Centre, Ballytivnan and Sligo Grammar School Music Department.
Building on the huge success of the fundraising concert held 2 years ago, it was decided to hold another concert this year, this time to help out the NW MS Therapy Centre.
The evening will be made up of a number of pieces performed by both the Past Pupils Choir and the current school choir, and this time Carbury National School Choir, made up of children from 3rd to 6th class, will perform for the first time on a public stage. The performances will be interspersed by a selection of vocal and instrumental pieces performed by special guests.
These will include, Sinead Conway Kohlmann, who has entertained audiences both locally and internationally, Kieran Quinn, who has run a series of hugely popular, sell out theme nights recently and Jonathan Carter, a classically trained baritone who has performed in Riverdance and internationally as guest soloist for many choirs and musical groups.
The evening will be hosted by RTE’s Tommie Gorman, who himself holds a keen interest in choral events and has been executive producer of RTE’s hugely popular programme The All Ireland Schools Choir Competition. He believes that schools choirs demonstrate superbly, ‘the ethos of teamwork and group activity’.
The concert promises to be a superb evening of entertainment, music and song.
Tickets are available from Sligo Grammar School, Carbury National School, the North West MS Therapy Centre, Ballytivnan and the MS Therapy Charity shop in the Wine Street Car Park.
The evening starts at 8pm on Saturday 23 April and will be a fully seated concert.
