FlashMob Final Day Fun

This is an  abbreviated form of the post from one of my school blogs.  We had a lot of fun not to mention exercise yesterday with this finale to our Level 1 programme. A total 75 children in three classes took the programme and performed on the day.

Flashmob Fun 1 Ms McMahons class at Cathedral
Well ! What an exciting and energetic day we had today as the beginners module of Swinging Strings programme came to a close for this year . There is nothing like live music so we took our newly acquired strings skills on to the streets of Ennis  to add to the soundscape  and the busking scene of the Clare county town today. 

Venue 1 Ms McMahon and class took up their positions outside the Cathedral . There was lots of room and we loved the square paving stones . Among the audience was Fiona Walsh of Ennis Gospel Choir  and her lovely little dog .

Cornet Player  A Going Home Fanfare 
Venue 2 The rain held off as Mr Blake and his class took up position in Barrack Street outside The Gourmet Store.The accoustics were very good here and Anne and David the proprietors gave us a warm welcome.
Venue 3 Finally, Mr Corry and his class made their way to the Temple Gate .  All the windows opened to hear our set as an American  tour group had just checked in . A serenade under their window was not quite what they were expecting!
