On Tuesday 14th April, both 4th classes were very lucky and delighted to attend a special classical concert called Music and Myths in The Ark, Temple Bar.
This concert was performed by the amazing Fidelio Trio who put us under their spell through their music.
We listened intently to the wonderful pieces of music from famous European composers including Beethoven, Bartok and Ravel. Darragh played fantastic tunes on the violin and explained the stories to us. Our favourites were the story from Greek Mythology about Zeus and we also heard some classic fairytales, Beauty and the Beast and Sleeping Beauty. Mary was amazing on the piano and told us she had been playing it for 34 years. WOW! Adi had a beautiful cello that was made in Italy in 1765.
We loved listening to the music and hearing different stories through the songs.
It was a great experience and we loved our trip to The Ark.
Stitching for Fun finished at Easter with a Certificate Ceremony for the boys and girls from Ms. Nolan and Ms. Doyle’s 3rd Classes. As you can see from the photos below their stitching was super! We would like to say a big THANK YOU to all the parents and teachers who helped us over the past number of weeks. Special thanks to Zoey’s Mam Anita who came every week!
