This week we are previewing the finalists of our Music for Schools Competition. Gaelscoil Aonach Urmhuman, Co. Tipperary is one of the Primary School finalists:
Gaelscoil Aonach Urmhuman has a broad and vibrant music programme that includes tuition in a range of traditional and orchestral instruments, sean-nós singing, two choirs, a marching band and a Grúpa Ceoil. Instruments are provided by the school, some students have their own, and others are lent by other students. Both teachers and parents donate a huge amount of voluntary time to developing music education at the school. Music at Gaelscoil Aonach Urmhuman is a central focus of the entire curriculum. The school plans to develop an orchestra and would use a Waltons Music for Schools Prize for more instruments to loan to children as well as a digital piano.
Their entry is ‘Sult ‘is Spraoi’, an arrangement of songs and traditional airs and songs performed by Grúpa Ceoil Gaelscoil Aonach, a 54-strong group of instrumentalists and singers.
