Trócaire Christmas Gala Concert

Trócaire Christmas Gala Concert

Took place 2nd December

On Sunday 2nd December, under the direction of Frances Stoker-Phelan, the Belvedere College choirs sang in the beautiful Mount Argus Church in Harold’s Cross as part of a Trócaire Christmas Gala Concert.  MC for the night was Joe Duffy, with celebrities such as the Irish soprano Margaret Keys, Vladimir Jablokov virtuoso violinist, the two Irish Tenors Peter O’Reilly and Niall Morris, boy soprano Davide Antochi and the award winning Morning Singers Choir. Fr. Brian D’Arcy gave a very moving reflection on the Christmas season, relaying how Mary & Joseph had to flee their homeland and were homeless at the time of Jesus’ birth. He drew parallels with what is going on in the world now.

The boys sang their hearts out to the beautiful piano acompaniment of Ryan Hargadon. All 1300 audience members were very impressed by not just their singing but by their excellent behaviour!

I’m very proud of them! They deserve high praise!
