The students of Cistercian College Roscrea returned to University Concert Hall, Limerick for their eighth annual concert at the venue since the CCR Music Scholarship Programme was launched last weekend.

Featuring the celebrated college choirs and orchestra, soloists and instrumentalists, this concert showcased the wide and varied musical tradition of the college.

Following the launch of the CCR Music Scholarship Programme in 2011 the Colleges Music Department has expanded hugely and now ranks as one of the most vibrant in the country.

The school has thanked teachers Mr. William Cullagh, Ms. Aoife O'Neill and Mr. Gary Doherty who have been involved in rehearsals for the musicians. 

Joining the Cistercian students on stage were students of Scoil Chrónáin Naofa, Dromakeenan and members of the Nenagh Musical Theatre Academy.

"We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the boys on the hard work they put in," the school stated.
