Proud parents sat back in their chairs, with smiles etched to their faces as they watched their young children perform to a packed audience at Aislann Rann na Feirste. Teachers stood with pursed lips behind the stage curtain hoping that all their training would create a flawless performance on the night, which doubtlessly they did.
Act after act came to the stage in a wash or colour and creativity much to the delight of their parents, teachers, friends and siblings. Ceolchoirm Scoil Naisiúnta Anagaire put on an act like never before, audiences listened in awe to solo singing of the highest calibre, they watched all types of creative dance in awe, they smiled at how cute the infants were and were impressed by the talent of the older children. During the year, teachers had realised the talent of some students and were very eager to showcase it to an audience. A mammoth amount of work went into the design and the creation of some of the costumes for stage. Backstage was busy with face painting, prop finding and hair brushing. Children were prepared ahead of their show and appeared calm, cool and collected on stage. The students enjoyed the event immensely and they were so disappointed it was all over but are looking forward to planning next years concert already.
