The students really enjoy partaking is such a wonderful team building exercise and wear their Musical school hoodies with great pride. Past musicals include “Jeckyll and Hyde,” “The Fiddler on the Roof,” and “Camelot,” and many more It is open to all Calasanctius students, their families, local national schools and the wider community. This year’s musical will be My “Fair Lady”.

It is a wonderful whole school event, giving students the opportunity to display their talents and leadership skills. There is a large cohort of students involved in back stage preparations.

Cala Ceoil

Description: The aim of this Music group is to provide students with a musical outlet in traditional and modern settings. It has been described as a “Trad group with a difference.” Ranging from a simple tin whistle to a saxophone, they aren’t your average traditional Group. The musicians play fiddles, concertinas, accordions, tin whistles, low whistles, flutes, guitars, spoons, a cajon drum and some members also sing and dance. They play traditional music but add a “Jazzy” contemporary twist on many of the pieces.

They practice regularly and perform for school, and local, events such as Jigsaw, St. Vincent De Paul, Ceoilchoirm Seactain Na Gaeilge, Cycle Against Suicide, Trócaire and even go busking on Shop Street! Last year they performed at the NAPD conference in Galway.

They enjoy playing music and love the social outlet it offers them. They meet many people from different year groups that they now consider friends for life.

School Choir

Description: The school Choir is a fantastic group of incredibly talented you people, spanning all year groups. They practice songs for many events for our school and for our local community. They are involved, on an annual basis, in the school musical, the first year Mass, Presentation Day Mass, two Christmas carol services (one school based, one community based), Graduation Mass, Open Night, Ceist Conference, assisting in the Leaving Cert Practical Music Exams and a public concert to showcase the work that has been completed for both the Junior Cert and Leaving Cert.
