It wasn’t easy to leave the comforts of home behind on the night of February 12th following a day of storm and devastation but those who ventured out were treated to a delightful evening of music, song and dance in Rochestown Park Hotel.
Our thanks to St. Columba’s Girls’ School Choir, PfizerPhonics and Cór Cois Abhann for their accomplished and varied performances, to charismatic soloist Karen Underwood and to the O’Mahony School of Irish Dance who brought the night to a lively conclusion. The whole programme was superbly compered by MC for the night, Claire Cullinane. Undoubted highlights were the exceptional singing of Karen Underwood and the haunting Medley from Les Miserables sung by the PfizerPhonics choir, both accorded standing ovations.
Most encouraging of all from a Douglas Tidy Towns perspective was the very obvious goodwill and generosity towards the work we do shown by performers, audience and sponsors alike. Rumour has it that our chairperson is already plotting the line-up for Musical Evening 2015. Following this year’s event, we can only say …. Bring it on, Marion!
P.S. Thanks to Chris from PfizerPhonics for the photographs
