Sunday evening sessions at Coolasmear hall

The Sunday Session:

 Sunday evening sessions will commence from October 4th from 6pm to 7.30pm. Nothing has had a bigger impact on the development of music in our area than the regular weekly session.  Supervised and facilitated by our members the slightly casual and social gathering allows the artistic freedom to develop among the younger ones and promotes leadership qualities among the teens.  It has also proved valuable for adults and new families, encouraging further connections outside of the branch structure, leading to musical collaboration between them.

 
 After our longer than usual summer break we didn’t expect a big crowd for the first session last Sunday evening.  With the Irish rugby team playing Italy live on TV and others tied up in football and hurling, a small number of chairs was put out, but the crowd just grew and grew.
 
  Nothing beats the enthusiasm so evident among these young folk ranging in age from six to sixteen, all getting great enjoyment out of displaying their progress in their chosen instrument.  Wonderful too to see the parents and other family members meeting up and taking time out from the more mundane activities and at the end of the session standing to attention for Amhrán na bhFiann which the young musicians so genuinely remind us must be played.
