A big Céad Míle Fáilte to our French students

Comeraghs Comhaltas News
Céad Míle Fáilte
Following many months of planning, emails and phone calls we will welcome our French musical guests this coming Friday evening April 24th.  Led by Steven Cashin, President of Ecole de Musique et la Danse de le Valee de Munster (Munster Valley Music  School), the group consisting of 10 students and 2 teachers will be in the area for 5 days.  From Friday evening to Sunday they will be guests of our branch and the students will be staying in the homes of our members in Cúil na Sméar and neighbouring areas.  
The Munster Valley Music School is situated in Alsace near the French/German border and like our own Sliabh na Féile School of Traditional Arts it is managed by a voluntary committee.  Like ourselves also it was set up 35 years ago.  Following the official welcome in Cúil na Sméar at 6.30pm on Friday there will be a musical interlude in the hall with a session by our members and some of our own teachers and pupils.  Should our guests arrive on time they will of course see the final classes of our busy Friday schedule.  From 10.30am Saturday until 3pm we will have the workshops given by their teachers and ours with some shared recitals. We have made special arrangements for our guests to attend the tribute night to Bobby Gardiner which will commence at 8pm in Ballyduff on Saturday.  On Sunday evening our guests will host a barbeque and on Monday and Tuesday visits to places of interest and Cúil na Sméar school are scheduled.  We encourage all our members to help make our guests welcome and please attend as many functions as possible.  Final details will be available on Friday evening at the classes.
