The Wallace High School looks forward greatly to welcoming Anuna to its music department. Capella are big fans of the music, the demands it makes on the performers and the possibilities it lends to movement in performance.

Having been to the last concert in Clonard Monastery, Capella returned more inspired than ever, especially as one of their colleagues, Vicky Warwick, was performing with them. Vicky, currently in second year music at QUB, will be one of 6 members of Anuna who will take Capella through its paces on April 13th.

Michael McGlynn, Founder and director of Anuna, will bring an added dimension to his compositions, and he will be joined by other voices from within the acclaimed choir.

For Capella, this is an opportunity to really appreciate professional performing, to learn these skills and to be put through their paces by another director. For some hopefuls, it’s also seen as a potential audition and a way into Anuna after they leave school.

Capella hopes to use some of the techniques learnt when they perform on Friday 15th in Victoria Square, Belfast as part of the huge Special Olympics event.
