Our girls performed at the Emmanuel concerts in Dublin's Helix theatre this week.
Last year, for the first time, our students from St. Mary's School took part in the concerts, signing the entire repertoire each night. As a result of the overwhelmingly positive response to their participation in Emmanuel, they went on to participate in the Liturgies of last year's Eucharistic Congress and were back in the Helix this week.
Over 2,000 students, from 58 different schools in the Archdiocese of Dublin took part in the Emmanuel concerts. The choir from St. Mary's performed on all three nights, and the response was again very positive, with a lot of signing participation from schools and audience.
Well done to the girls and to Shirley Higgins, Artistic Director and Conductor of the Choir.
We are immensely proud of your achievement!
