Songs from the Silver Screen

Last night, Cavan Singers winter and spring of trojan work came to fruition for everyone in the choir, guest performers, and audience.

Eileen Tackney, our creative Musical Director put together a terrific program of music from movies old and new. Frances Galligan and the production team got the Kilmore stage, sound, lighting and AV to professional standard. Paul Henry and the staff of the Hotel Kilmore supported us in every request. And best of all, our friends, colleagues and families, who'd came out in their hundreds, were treated to a fantastic evening of music and song.

(Our interval raffle in aid of Cavan General Hospiral new Cystic Fibrosis unit was brilliantly supported as ever - watch this space for details.)

Here's our programme (thanks to Mags Amond, Carmel Gaffney and Nollaig Amond Murray), and some pictures from the evening (thanks to Mary Haren and Dara Hume for sharing these).
