Music Generation Laois are hosting a Christmas concert in the Dunamaise Theatre on Sunday, December 8. The concert will bring together young musicians from each of the seven music programmes now established in the county.
Gay McKeon, uilleann piper, and his students will perform, as will young harpists from the Music Generation Laois Harp programme. St Colmcille’s NS Errill will represent the Schools Choir Programme, and the Mountrath Glee Club will make a welcome return to the Dunamaise Theatre after a dazzling performance in June this year.
Young musicians from the School of Rock and Pop will entertain the audience with some excellent pop songs, including staunch Christmas favourites. The Music Generation Laois Stampede Drumming Group will perform with their leader Eddie O’Neill. The concert will also feature soloists and duets from the brass and Music Box programmes.
Music Generation Laois coordinator, Rosa Flannery said: “This Christmas concert is a wonderful chance to see what the Music Generation Laois programme is all about.”
