County Mayor, Cllr Darragh Butler praised the young music students of the Fingal Academy of Music, after they performed their Spring Concert at the Riasc Centre in Swords recently.
This year saw a big change in Fingal Academy of Music, with a new Academy Director taking the helm, the introduction of new instrumental tutors and a new Fingal Choral team. The Spring Concert gave a platform for Fingal Children’s Choir, Fingal Youth Choir, Academy soloists, as well as a cappella ensembles and includes singers aged between 14 to 18. After about 100 hours of rehearsal, they have given some fantastic performances and even picked up a prize at Navan Choral Festival last month.
The Mayor praised the work done by Fingal Academy of Music on the night and reiterated the importance of investing in the arts; particularly highlighting youth music education in the area and he looks forward to seeing Fingal Academy of Music grow.
