The Music Department’s Spring Concert was a resounding success. The standard of the performers was excellent, with a huge variety of solo and ensemble items. From the virtuosic Great Train Race performed by Music Honours student Gareth Houston, to the stilling Capella performance of Stanford’s Beati Quorum Via there was something for everyone in the enthusiastic audience. Other items included Alex Philpot’s saxophone rendition of Monk’s ‘Round Midnight, transforming the Cathedral into a Jazz acoustic space, while Glee fever took over as the Senior Choir, under the direction of Mr McGeown sang Don’t stop believin’. Head of Music, Mr Falconer praised the diligence and commitment shown by the students, acknowledging the hours of practice dedicated to attaining musical excellence.
Capella can be heard this coming Sunday, May 2nd, at 7.30pm in Drumbeg Parish Church, where they will sing a 50 minute concert of music from McGlynn’s Fionnghuala to Weelkes’ Hosanna to the Son of David. A retiring collection for the parish is taken at the end of the concert..
They can also be heard on June 26th in Armagh Cathedral before they embark on their tour to Cork. Capella is conducted by David Falconer.
