Prestigious win for Tullamore Stage School Youth Choir
Tullamore Stage School's Youth Choir claimed first prize at the Kilcoole Music Festival in Wicklow last weekend.
Under Musical Director Regina McCarthy and accompanied by Loreta Mackelaite, the choir gave an outstanding performance of 'Ave Maria' by Mervyn Cousins and 'Bruce and the Spider' by Arthur Gawthorne to claim the Mary Kieran Perpetual Cup.
Adjudicator Virginia Kerr praised this young ensemble for their very polished performance. She was very impressed with their overall musicality, in particular their diction, phrasing and facial expression.
