The Lourdes Brass Band would like to sincerely thank everyone involved with the Alzheimer’s Day Care Centre Drogheda for inviting us to participate in their recent concert ‘An Evening of Music’ which was held on the 3rd of November. We would especially like to thank Ann Shortt and the committee of the Drogheda branch for their invite to take part in their fantastic concert last week.
The Lourdes Youth Band, with conductor Mr. John Walsh, closed the first half of the show. Their performance included some of the pieces which they recently performed in the prestigious National Concert Hall. The Senior Band, under the baton of Professor Michael Alcorn, opened the second half of the show playing some well known numbers such as The Candyman arranged by Prof. Alcorn, and My Love is Like a Red Red Rose which featured our prize winning cornet player Mark Newman.
Congratulations to all involved. The concert was a huge success and it was an absolute pleasure to be given the opportunity to perform at such a well attended and organised event. As a fellow community organisation, we appreciate how difficult it is to fundraise in order to deliver such a vital service to our area and the town of Drogheda.
The Lourdes Band strives to serve the Drogheda community and is proud to support the Alzheimer’s Day Care Centre Drogheda.
