Pupils from 2nd and 3rd class travelled to Dublin on the 21st of January to listen to the RTE Symphony Orchestra. Music in the classroom musical adventures was presented by Tom Redmond and conducted by David Brophy. The orchestra performed 8 pieces of music including Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker, Michael Giacchino Star Trek and John Williams Harry Potter. Afterwards, our school had the privilege of meeting one of the musicians and got a backstage tour along with meeting Peadar Townsend composer of Landscape and Chase. It was a terrific day out and the pupils and teachers thoroughly enjoyed it. The trip was partly funded by the Creative Arts Grant which we received from the Arts Council.
