TY Virtual Talent Show
Scoil Mhuire’s current amazing Transition Year group have gone above and beyond the expectations of everyone, by planning, coordinating, performing, recording and editing an entire variety concert all by themselves. Each and every member of the year group was given a very important role to play in this production, and it was ensured by the girls that nobody in the year group was left out.
This Virtual Variety Concert was inspired by the fact that, for the first time in many many years, the TYs were unable to visit the local Ennistymon Hospital to perform and entertain the residents of the hospital during this Christmas season. So, instead of doing nothing, they used their initiative and came up with this outstanding idea of providing a virtual concert for them. This then led to the idea of sharing their concert with other Nursing Homes & hospitals, selflessly sharing the wonderful gift of their talent to those who may not experience the joy of music, under the current circumstances, at this special time of year.
With the use of a standard phone and no other fancy recording equipment, they recorded all the numbers themselves, and so skillfully edited the entire concert themselves. This was their project, an outstanding show of skill, talent, initiative and responsibility. These young ladies deserve the wonderful recognition of all these skills. It has been shared to various hospitals and Nursing Homes nationwide, and the reaction to their effort has been an absolute credit to this wonderful group of young ladies. Very well done to Sarah Clarke also, our TY student whose article on the concert appeared in The Clare Echo.
