13/05/2013 SUCCESS FOR LORETO COLLEGE CHOIRS

It has been a successful end to the competition and performance season for the Choirs of Loreto College Coleraine, as the choir-members in the senior years prepare to focus on their examinations.

The Loreto Junior Choir recently took first place in the Post Primary Schools’ Choirs (15 years and under) class at the Bangor International Choral Festival, winning high praise from the Adjudicators for their sophisticated presentation of a mature programme for such a young age-group.

The school’s Junior, Senior and Male Voice Choirs performed with great distinction in the Loreto College Spring Concert just before the Easter holidays.  As a follow-up to this, some members drawn from all three Loreto Choirs spent five days in London during the Easter break.  As well as exploring the sights of London and attending a performance of the musical Wicked, the talented young singers gave a lunchtime recital in St Paul’s Church Covent Garden – known locally as The Actors’ Church.  Their performance there was met with great praise by all of those lucky enough to attend their concert.

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, paid tribute to the College’s Choirmaster, Mr Howard Gillespie, tutor, Mrs Annie Sharkey, Head of Music Miss Roisin Stewart, Music teacher Mr Stephen Gallagher and to all the members of the College’s choirs on a very fine programme of competitions and recitals, both as the Summer Term began and throughout the year.
