Athlone School Orchestra Launches


MGOW begins working with local musicians to establish the Athlone Schools Orchestra.


Athlone Schools Orchestra 


The Athlone Schools Orchestra launched on Saturday, 18th of October and great fun was had by all at their first rehearsal.

A large range of instrumentalists came along and travelled from as far afield as Clara. For many, Saturday was their first experience of ensemble playing - but you wouldn't have known it!

The Athlone Schools Orchestra rehearses on Saturdays between 3pm - 5pm in St. Peter's National School, Athlone. Each week, rehearsals will be supervised by two MGOW instrumental outreach tutors who will provide support to the young instrumentalists through a mix of group work and ensemble playing.

ALL children and young people and ALL instruments are welcome.

Interested parents can find out more by contacting Paul Hensey (MGOW tutor and ASO Coordinator) on (087) 602 2478, by email - or via facebook.
