This year some boys from the choir are lucky enough to be invited to take part in The Peace Proms initiative. This involves singing with other schools accompanied by the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland. This orchestra have played all over the world including places like Carnagie Hall in New York and The Royal Albert Hall in London as well as Áras an Uachtarán and Dublin Castle for people like Queen Elizabeth II and President Higgins. The boys have been hard at work learning a whole host of new songs in preparation and had their first rehearsal on Wednesday in Leisure Land in Galway. Altogether there were 699 students there from different schools from Galway and beyond. All these students will come together along with the CBOI orchestra on the 31st of January at 2pm for a concert. It promises to be a brilliant event and one the boys are very lucky to be a part of.
The boys still have work to do learning off all the words and the dance moves to go with them so to give them a helping hand all the songs and the words can be found on the new Peace Proms page.
For anyone wishing to book tickets they can only be bought online on the Peace Proms website which you can visit by clicking here
