St Agnes' Parents String Orchestra was formed in 2010 by parents and grandparents of children in St Agnes' Primary School and Scoil Colm Boys NS. The orchestra was initially formed as an informal ensemble for a six week period in which the participants would have a chance to find out a little more about what their children were experiencing through St Agnes' School Violin & Orchestra project.
Very quickly it was clear that this experiment was not going to end after a six week period, and the interest was so great that an evening group was set up to include adult players who could not attend on a Tuesday morning.
Currently members of St Agnes' Parents String Orchestra number 85 approx. with an age range of more than 50 years. The membership includes not only parents and grandparents but those in the community, retired staff -
The Parents' Orchestra performs in many venues including; Drimnagh Arts Festival, Newgrange Hotel, Navan, Farmleigh in Phoenix Park,Christchurch Cathedral, Liberty Hall Clongowes Wood College. St Agnes' Parents String Orchestra regularly teams up with the Sounds Ensemble, a wind and brass band directed by Terence Clancy. Members of the orchestra formed the basis of our orchestra for the 2016 opera production of Benjamin Britten’s ‘Noye’s Fludde’.
