On Thursday 25 April, St Paul’s Learning Support Centre Choir travelled to Mullingar to take part in the All Ireland Choir competition.
Prepared by Mr Peter Slane, St Paul’s were competing against fifteen choirs from all over Ireland and finished second overall after singing three pieces.
The adjudicators commented on the wonderful atmosphere of happiness and joy St Paul’s brought to the stage and praised the beautiful harmonies and the seven solo parts in the performance. They loved the chorus and how attentive they were to their conductors Jack and Karyn, who along with Mr Slane and Head Girl Afreen, have worked tirelessly all year to get the choir ready for this competition.
Well Done to all involved.
