MAR24: Clongowes Wood College SJ Bicentenary Concert
March 24, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm€15
Music has been an integral part of life in Clongowes since the earliest days of the school some 200 years ago and is evident in the ongoing high standards of our performances in concert and competition. From the successes of Old Clongownian, James Joyce in the Feis Ceoil to recent achievements on concert stages the tradition has gone from strength to strength. Today there is a large music staff, in several different disciplines, with a wide and varied range of skills, qualifications and experience to encourage our young Clongownians in the pursuit of their musical development. On Tuesday 24th March current and past pupils will become brothers in music in a Gala Concert that will mark the Clongowes Bicentenary. Tribute will also be paid to our rich theatrical tradition in the shape of several vignettes, which will pepper the evening’s entertainment and add spice to a joyous celebration of the contribution to the arts in Ireland by its premier Boarding School.
Ticket prices are €15 (Child: €10) or Concessions €10. Tickets may be booked online here, by phone 01 4170000 or in person through the National Concert Hall Box Office, which is open from 10am – 6pm, Monday to Saturday.
