Last Wednesday March 1st, the TY students took part in the EMMANUEL Concerts at the Helix. This is an initiative between schools and the Dublin Diocese. It was great to take part again in this wonderful event after the Pandemic, and it was so inspiring and uplifting to see and hear so many young people singing. The concerts promote wonderful music that can be used in our schools for Liturgy.
Among the highlights were video greetings from the various composers, and it was a lovely surprise to include a video message from the very famous Bjorn Kristian Ulaevus of ABBA whose song “Ode To Freedom” was one of the pieces performed.
The Religion Department would like to express how well our TY students participated and represented Maryfield College. A special note to our soloists, Cliona Barrett who sang “The Prayer” and Ai Lin Sun who played the piano in the orchestra.
Congratulations and well done to everybody involved. The whole event was a great success.
