Bunscoil Loreto, Gorey

Waltons Waltons Music for Schools Competition

Bunscoil Loreto, Gorey has been chosen as one the six Primary School finalists in the Walton’s Music for Schools Competition.  71 pupils from Bunscoil Loreto will perform in the final in the National Concert Hall on May 12th.   Bunscoil Loreto (c. 600 students) has a thriving whole-school music programme in which children, teachers and parents are involved.

The entry is featured on the Walton’s web site and also on the Walton’s u-tube channel. Their entry  is based on the Canon from the beautiful Pachabel’s Canon. The school orchestra play Pachabel’s Canon while some members of their traditional band play Pachabel’s Frolics (an Irish reel) and members of the choir sing an adapted extract from Graduation Song by Vitiman C. They are very proud of the final result which you can view by clicking the following:
