We Are Called (Lyrics)

Text and Music by David Haas, 1988 Performed by the LPC Singers Virtual Choir Directed and Mixed by Mike Kabash, 2021 http://www.lincroftpc.org

Spirit Filled Day

This is one of the songs we sing for Confirmation - our version is slightly different but it will give you a head start to rehearse at home.

On This School Our Blessing, Lord - For First Communion /Confirmation, we sing a similar version of this song but the words are 'On this Child your blessing Lord'. This is the closest recording I can find.

Peace Proms 3rd February RDS Dublin

Peace Proms - The Concert

After all the rehearsing the concert is finally over and we had a ball! It was a long day but a fantastic experience . We sang in front of a crowd of 4000 people in the RDS!! There were 2500 children from schools all over Ireland in the choir . We sang a variety of songs but I think the highlight of the day was during the musicals medley a very special guest appeared! It was Alisha Weir the star of the Matilda the musical movie! We were star struck! Thank you very much to Sharon, Greg and all the CBOI orchestra members . A special thank you to Ms Magner , Ms Mc Kenna and Ms Byrne for teaching us and supervising on the Saturday . This is the fourth time the school has participated in Peace Proms and we’ve enjoyed every minute. We hope to be lucky to perform there again some time soon.

On Saturday 4th February , we headed to RDS Simmonscourt for the Peace Proms. For many of our choir , it was their first time on stage . It was a fantastic opportunity for the children to sing with a live symphony orchestra . Over 2500 children from all over Ireland came together to form the Dublin Peace Proms choir. We had a fantastic day! Thanks to Ms. Magner, Ms. Ní Chonchubair, Ms McKenna & Mrs Magner for accompanying the children on the day . 

Choir After School- See you in January!

There is no after school until after Christmas as the hall is out of use with Christmas plays .

It will be full steam ahead after Christmas and we may have to squeeze in a few extra rehearsals .
