St Agnes’ Chamber Orchestra at NYCI Youth Event, Mansion House.
The St. Agnes’ Chamber Orchestra were delighted to represent the Youth of Crumlin and Ireland at this important event on September 27th 2017. The National Youth Council of Ireland ‘Youth Work Changes Lives’ showcase provided young people with the opportunity to meet with their local TDs and Senators and share with them first-hand what they do, what they learn and the benefits of youth work for them and their communities.
The Chamber Orchestra performance followed the very lively and inspiring speech by Minister Katherine Zappone, Minister for Children and Youth Affairs and their lively performance kicked off a very upbeat atmosphere for the day. They played the Prelude from the Holberg Suite by Edward Grieg, and followed with the St. Agnes’ favourite, the Finale from the overture to ‘Orpheus in the Underworld’. The performance was a fitting illustration of the enjoyment and satisfaction that can be achieved by dedication, enthusiasm and teamwork amongst our young people.
