The School Orchestra comprises students from all year groups but in particular Junior students. In addition to strings and flutes one of our students plays the cornet. We now have a training programme in place for double bases and cellos with a view to boosting our bases section.
The School Orchestra meets each Thursday at lunchtime and new members are always welcome.
The students of Coláiste Muire Orchestra Ennis travelled to Dublin on 13th February to perform at the premier venue of the National Concert Hall as part of the Irish Association of Youth Orchestras Festival 2010.
They were guests of St. Peter's College Orchestra, Dunboyne Co. Meath.It is thirty years since an ensemble from Coláiste Muire performed at this prestigious venue when they were conducted by Sr. Paul who worked tirelessly to foster musical excellence in Ennis over her long career. The combined ensemble was one of eight orchestras selected to perform on the day. They were the only school ensemble on the programme. A wonderful and memorable day was had by all students, staff, parents and grandparents many of whom travelled to Dublin for the event.
