The Ardscoil na Tríonóide Choir was formed at the begining of the Academic Year 2012/2013 under the direction of Mr. Frank Copeland and assisted by staff from the School’s Music Faculty.
In previous years, a choir was assembled prior to a special event in order to provide a musical ambiance to such an event. However, this current choir will meet at least once a week with a view to not only continuing the tradition of providing a musical ambiance, but to become a definining characteristic of our school. Participation in choral competitions and the possibility of producing a CD recording are some of the activities currently under investigation.
The School Management and Staff are very supportive of this venture as is the Board of Management. This support was expressed in the recent investment of twenty new blazers in addition to donations of blazers which were emblazoned with the Ardscoil na Tríonóide Crest. Blazers formerly used in Scoil Mhuire (prior to amalgamation with Scoil Eoin) were also donated and emblazoned in a similar fashion.
In addition to the provision of the blazers, donations of presentation folders were made to the Choir. These folders, which are a uniform black colour, will contain the music scores needed for specific occasions and performances.
