Sunday March 16th
We'll celebrate St. Patrick's Day this Sunday with music by great Irish composers - The Children of Lir by Hamilton Harty, Riverdance by Bill Whelan and we'll go a-milking with music by Joan Trimble. Plus some traditional Irish songs performed by RTÉ Cór na nÓg.
Sunday March 23rd
Gustav Holst became a music teacher in a girls school because he wasn't making enough money as a composer, but after he became successful he liked the school so much that he stayed there! On Sunday we'll hear a suite of music that he wrote for his students, and we'll visit Outer Space with his 'Planets' Suite. We'll also travel to Africa, Austria and Australia to hear some wonderful boys and girls choirs.
