Colm Brings It Home ...

Evening Echo article of our concerts with Colm Wilkinson

Padraig Hoare writes about our concerts with Colm Wilkinson. These concerts will be remembered by the orchestra for many years. George Hook went down a storm on stage, but it was backstage that he made the most impact, he gave his time freely to the players for photos, autographs (never thought we'd see rugby balls in City Hall on CYO concert night).

However the biggest memory for most will be the time, consideration, and encouragement that Colm Wilkinson gave to the Orchestra during rehearsals. Followed by the fantastic experience that this group had of performing two sold-out concerts with this Legend of the theatre world. Well over 2,000 people came along to watch a connection being made by this group of players under our conductor Tomás McCarthy, and Colm Wilkinson. Here's hoping that this isn't the end, you'd never know ??

CYO concert Killarney

Successful trip to Kerry

CYO performs charity concerts in Kenmare and Killarney

This years annual trip to Kerry was a real successful tour for a number of reasons. First off the weather was particularly kind, with the players actually getting to see some of the 50 acres of forest which is part of the Hostel, our base for this trip.

The venue, and reception that we received at the Kenmare Secondary School was great, and we hope to make this a firm part of future trips to Kerry. Our concert in the Malton, Killarney was as usual special, the venue really suits the orchestra, and the grub was good too.

Our soloist Rob Craig, and guest soloist Cllr Kieran McCarthy both did a great job, and were very well received at both concerts. The players had a great time, and good work done to prepare for our concerts with Colm Wilkinson.

The trip raised much needed funds for Home from Home, respite care for special needs children, and The Killarney Friends of the Children of Chernobyl, so the trip was worthwhile for this alone. The Orchestra returned to Cork with alot of catch up to do on the sleep front, but will remember this trip for some time, well until Italy at least. But just in case you've forgotten already there's plenty of photos on our facebook page so check it out.
