Music

Music is an outstanding feature of life at the School and the Music Department has experts in a wide range of musical instruments and music types as well as singing coaches for vocalists.

In addition to improving their own musical abilities, pupils are encouraged to play in the Orchestra, Jazz Band and other impromptu bands. Participation in feiseanna and concerts is a feature for musicians and singers who also undertake the various examinations for the Royal Irish School of Music gradings.

The Choir is central to the musical aspects of the School and performs at Chapel Services and annual events such as Charter Day, Confirmation, Harvest Festival and Carol Service.

A School Musical is held every second year (alternating with a School Play) and the standards of performance are exceptionally high, as is the attention to detail on staging, costumes, lighting and sound.

The School Talent Show, with pupils demonstrating a wide variety of musical and dramatic skills, is one of the highlights each year.
