Mayfest celebrations enjoyed by pupils
THE Western Education and Library Board’s (WELB) Music Service held its annual ‘Mayfest’ celebrations in the Millennium Forum, Derry, recently.
Two music workshops, attended by more than 1,500 primary school pupils – including those from Barrack Street Boys PS, Donemana PS, St Caireall’s PS, Castlederg and St Joseph’s PS, Glenmornan – filled the Millennium Forum’s auditorium for the morning and afternoon sessions.
The focus for this year’s workshops was the exciting sound of Dance – Rock and Roll to Hip Hop via Swing and Jive. A 30-piece orchestra, along with vocalists from the Musical Pathways to Learning (MPL) team, led Key Stage 2 pupils in well-known and popular music from the ‘60s to current hits, including many favourites from the television show Glee.
