Teachtaireacht ón gCathaoirleach - Chairperson's Message
The Class Concert of May 15th was a fitting event to bring closure to our 2022 – ‘23 Classes. Congratulations to all who participated in a very enjoyable evening and a major THANK YOU to all Teachers, Branch & Committee Members for their energy,enthusiasm and dedication since the classes commenced in September 2022.
There have been so many activities since recommencing in-person Instrument, Singing & Dance classes, from the Culture Night event – ‘Trad at the Barn’, to Bi-Weekly Music Sessions, the Annual Recital and the resumption of Grúpa na nÓg.
Additionally, the delayed celebration of the Branch’s 40 year anniversary saw our Misneac Orchestra perform an Orchestral Suite of music, specifically commissioned and written for this significant anniversary.
For those that missed the performances in the theatres in Naas & Clontarf, or those that want to relive the magical experience, the Orchestra has been invited to perform Misneach on August 9th in the Mullingar Arts Centre, during the All-Ireland Fleadh.
Enjoy the summer weeks, hopefully continuing to Play, Sing & Dance. You may be planning to attend some of the many Traditional Music & Dance Summer Schools throughout the country. If so, enjoy. Bainigí taitneamh astu.
And as you enjoy the summer be assured that we have commenced planning for the 2023 -24 classes, with a focus upon providing additional opportunities for Group Playing.
