A school orchestra from the states is coming to Dublin…
The Thomas Hart Middle school from Pleasanton, east of San Francisco, USA, are travelling to Ireland with 3 ensembles – Wind Ensemble, String Orchestra, and Jazz Band, conducted by Denis Aquilina. The School prides itself on travelling and performing at venues that give the students the opportunity to share their music with an audience outside of their home in Pleasanton California.
Their Instrumental Music program has performed in many different famous places, like at Carnegie Hall, in Washington D.C. at the Lincoln Memorial, and Jefferson Memorial, Jackson Square in New Orleans and also at Disneyland, and the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. They have performed the National Anthem at the Washington Nationals, Chicago White Sox, San Francisco Giants and Oakland A’s Baseball games. The Jazz Band has performed at the House Of Blues in Chicago and New Orleans, and B.B. Kings in NYC.
During their Ireland tour, they will visit five locations in Ireland, including St Patrick’s Cathedral. The reason is “to honour the namesake of their school Thomas S. Hart who is a native son of Ireland.”
Starting May 6th at 20:00, for a duration of 90 minutes, this event promises to be fantastic… And remember, it’s free!
