Last night, Saturday 9th April 2011, I attended the Ulster Hall in Belfast, for a charity event in aid of the Mayor of Ards Charity for 2010/11 – The Link.
A number of schools performed including Regent House, Londonderry Primary, St. Finnian Primary and Movilla High. Compare for the event was Lynda Bryans with other performers Jeff Martin, Diane Petherick, Ards Choral Society and Fr. Martin O’Hagan.
I was with Movilla High School – fife & lambeg drum group and bagpipe & snare drum. The boy’s all played extremely well and received a loud cheer and rapturous applause, at the end of their performance.
As a tutor it was rewarding to see young people – who never get an opportunity to perform, being allowed to express their musical talents at a public performance, especially at a venue like the Ulster Hall in Belfast.
Well done Movilla - with valuable support from Mrs Ferris (Miss Coey)
