Moate Community School and Music
There is a long tradition of singing and choir in our school,dating bavck tot he time of the Mercy sisters. It is with great pride that we coninue with that tradition in the M.C.S. Music Department. In 2010 we embraced a new inititiative of having choir rehearsals after school on Monday evenings from 4-5pm. The Response was phenomenal. Our Choir consists of approx. 50 members with students from First-Sixth year,both male and female.
We strive to cover pieces from every musical genre so as to have a varied and contrasting repertoire. We preform regularly at many occasions such as School Masses, concerts and scchool functions. In 2012 we held a Christmas concert and in the spring of 2013 we held our first Summer Proms.
Both the Junior and Senior Chamber Choir rehearse during Lunchtime. The Chamber choir is for those who are really passionate about music and are willing to invest time and effort into perfecting a challenging repertorie as part of a group.
We are very fortunate to have a very vibrant instrumental tuition programme in our school. The Programme facilitates the development of performance skills at an appropriate level. Our programme is a total success with many students hiring the instruments from the school and availing of tuition offered. Out Instrumental teachers offere tuition on :
