Congratulations to 5th Year Emily Spencer, who was one of 6 young flautists invited to perform at the National Concert Hall on Wednesday, November 27th, to celebrate the 80th birthday of legendary musician, Sir James Galway. Among those in the audience on the night was President Michael D. Higgins. Emily is a member of Music Generation Offaly/Westmeath’s Sinfonia orchestral development initiative. This was a fantastic opportunity for Emily, as she played an important role in this significant occasion to honour ‘the man with the golden flute’. Our school is very lucky to have such talent and we look forward to hearing her perform along with the school orchestra and choir at this year’s Christmas Concert on Tuesday, Dec. 17th.
