We'll celebrate on St. Patrick's Day with music by Irish composers including The Children of Lir by Hamilton Harty plus some traditional Irish songs performed by RTÉ Cór na nÓg.

Sunday March 26th, 10am

We'll travel around the world with postcards from The King's Singers and to celebrate Mother's Day, we'll hear the story of The Runaway Bunny, about a little bunny rabbit who decides to run away. But his wise Mum tells him, 'If you run away, I will run after you.' With music by Glen Roven, the story is read by Brooke Shields. And with the Feis Ceoil starting this week in Dublin, we'll hear performances by some of the many great winners over the years, including John O'Conor, Cara O'Sullivan and Finghin Collins. 

Sunday April 2nd

Do you ever wonder if your toys come to life when you're asleep? Well this morning we'll visit a magic toyshop, to see what adventures the toys who live there get up to at night! We'll also learn about composers who loved to travel to different parts of the world, and write music about the places they visited.
