CYO and JCYO will return to rehearsals on the 3rd of September, at Deerpark. Our three orchestras have busy schedules planned. Our Chamber Orchestra has been invited to perform at the City Councils "Culture Night" which will be held on the 23rd of September. The Orchestra will perform in the Masonic Hall in Tuckey St, and should be a very special occasion. The RTE Vanbrugh Quartet have performed at this venue for the last two culture nights, so we are following in special footsteps.
Plans are advanced for our concerts with Colm Wilkinson which will be held on the 10th and 11th of December in the City Hall. Listen out for Colm on 96fm next Tuesday morning (30th). There will be an overnight trip to Killarney to prepare for the City Hall. The Junior Orchestra will perform at the IAYO Festival of Youth Orchestras concert at the National Concert Hall, Dublin in Feb 2012.
Tour plans are progressing with the Tour to Italy, we will be travelling to Tuscany early in July 2012 where we will perform in Florence, Lucca and Montecatini.
