Cistercian College Roscrea made our return to the University Concert Hall Limerick for the
Musica Vivit, annual music concert on Thursday April 27th. The evening was filled with
music from the College choirs, orchestra, soloists and instrumentalists, all performed by the
students involved in the Music Department here at the College.
The programme and music for the evening was arranged by the College’s Director of Music,
Mr. William Cullagh and by Ms. Olivia Lynch, College Music teacher.
College Principal, Mr Gerard Grealish spoke about the evening and the talent that the
students showcased on the night:
“It was a fantastic opportunity for our students to get to perform in the University Concert
Hall. Talent evolves in the music department each year and many new stars were born on
stage on the night. As always our students continue to be the best at marketing the College
and I was very proud of them. A huge thank you also to our Gala Ball Committee who
presented us with a cheque on the night. This money raised from the proceeds of recent
Parent’s Association Gala Ball will ensure that the Music Department continues to grow in
The audience enjoyed the evening of music and were entertained from start to finish, by the
Master of Ceremony, Mr Séamus Hennessy who introduced each act on the night and kept
the audience entertained with his great presence and storytelling.
Music is an integral part of the College curriculum and we thank all who supported this very
important College event.
