Video Highlights of CSM 24th Spring Gala Concert 2019

Spring Gala Concerts at The Old Canteen Hall, Castleknock Community College

Sunday 3rd March 2019


Our annual Summer Gala Concerts this year were held in Spring mainly because our choir conductor Lorraine Galvin was going on maternity leave. Springtime for our concerts worked really well just before St. Patrick's Day. And delighted to announce Lorraine gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on the 16th March. Mammy, daddy and baby all doing great!!

Highlights of our 2 concerts here:




Congrats to all involved: students, teachers, performers, organisers, sound engineer, accompanist, conductor, videographer and especially our parents for all your ongoing and fabulous support :)
