Co. Loch Garman Youth Band

Formed in 2011, the on-going training of the youth band continues under the directorship of MD John Clancy together with a team of voluntary instructors from the Loch Garman Band.

The Loch Garman Band was formed in 1937 and celebrated their 75th anniversary by performing in Concert in the Wexford Opera House in Nov 2012.

The occasion was further enhanced through the first appearance of the Youth Band who performed music by Handel, Parker and Charpentier at the celebration concert.

In Dec 2012 the Youth Band performed an open air recital of Christmas music for the Wexford Town Traders Association. In 2013 they performed programmes of sacred music inClonardParishChurchand the Church of the Assumption Rowe Street, Wexford. 

Currently there are 25 members in training ranging in age from 10 to17years. Each member has been equipped with an instrument and appropriate training material.

We could not provide these facilities without the on-going help and support of the people of Wexford, our Borough Council, individual contributions, and The Arts Council.

 

Faythe School Rock Choir

Formed in February 2012 and under the direction of Ian Grey and his wife Louise, this out of school choir rehearses every Monday evening at the school.

Conceptualised as an activity primarily for fun, singing and keeping contact with past pupils, the Rock Choir has been enhanced by the choreography of Meagan O Connor.

In two short years they have built up quite a repertoire and have performed at school and parish liturgies, community fund raisers and Wexford Town Tops Group.
