Choirs & Orchestras

Students are encouraged to join either Intermediate or Senior Orchestra and to enjoy the experience of playing together. Both orchestras do the Department of Education Examination each year and have also entered the Feis Ceoil Orchestra Competition.

Choral Singing plays an important part in the Junior Cycle school curriculum. Each choir also takes the Department of Education Examination.

The Cecilian Choir is drawn from the whole student body and is for those students who wish to take part in extra choral singing during their free time. This choir greatly enhances all Liturgical celebrations and also takes part in competitions from time to time.

The Chamber Choir is a four part choir for the school that is largely unaccompanied. Auditions for Soprano I, II, Alto I and II are held for Third to Sixth years. The Chamber Choir takes Department of Education Examinations as well as performing for school events and taking part in choral competitions.
