Tullamore Stage School choir and orchestra ‘dare to dream’

Tullamore Stage School Choir & Orchestra, under Musical Director Regina McCarthy, launched their first CD 'Dare to Dream' recently at the Charleville Centre, Tullamore.

The CD, supported by the Arts Office at Offaly County Council, consists of twelve tracks covering various styles of vocal and instrumental music.

Recording the album with the difficulty of ongoing restrictions proved challenging, but the professionalism, attention to detail and patience of sound engineer Peter Kelly at Penny Lane Studios, Tullamore saw us through.

A recent launch was the culmination of great teamwork on the part of everyone involved. The launch saw performances from both TSS Choir and Orchestra along with solos from Hannah Walsh, Rory Byrne, Sinead Flanagan, Patricia McCarthy and guest artists Eva Barry, Ciara McKeogh, Ellen Godley and Loreta Mackelaite.

MC Dara Byrne in her closing speech, acknowledged the wonderful facilities available to Tullamore Stage School at the Charleville Centre and to Brosna Press Ferbane for designing the CD sleeve. The very appropriate CD title 'Dare to Dream' was the brainchild of one of the parents Sandra Sheeran.

CD 'Dare to Dream' will be on sale at the Charleville Centre on Saturday mornings between 9am and 1pm and costs €15.
