We are excited to present "The Sound of Newtown" CD. The students from the Newtownmountkennedy Primary School together with the Music Generation Wicklow were working hard on rehearsing and producing their music CD that is now available for purchase in the school. Each class recorded a song and the whole school together recorded a music video promoting the school and the project.

Children and teachers from Coolgreany National School have something special for the parents, families and the local community this Christmas. In the last few months they were working on their Christmas CD. Each class prepared a song that was later recorded in the school during their recording day. The students together with the graphic designer created a beautiful cover to accompany their album. The CD is now available to purchase in the school. You can also listen to one of the songs from the album on YouTube or by clicking the link below. Well done everyone!
This coming Thursday is going to be a very special day for all the people involved in producing the Christmas music CD at St Joseph's National School in Kilcock. It'll be launched at a special event, and having just received the CDs from the manufacturer, they sound and look terrific.
It's been such a pleasure working on the CD with the school, from initial meetings to plan what might go on the album, all the way through to recording and producing it. The team, lead by principal Ann Mcquillan and the music director Bernadette Shiel-Nolan, brought wonderful energy and confidence to the project, and even revealed some great talent in the team. And they helped to unlock the creativity and joy of the children themselves, all of whom sing on the CD.
The launch takes place in St Coca's Church in Kilcock on the 8'th December at 7.30pm
The CD, which will raise funds for the school, is on sale at the event and afterwards. It can also order it online at firstname.lastname@example.org
Schools or choirs interested in making their own CD can get advice from me at 087 615 3175 or email@example.com
The launch of the Kilcock Men's Shed CD was an amazing night (Friday 11th November). The men performed live the songs they recorded for their first album, in front of a large audience in the town's church. This included their own composition "Sands of Time", which received a standing ovation from the enthusiastic crowd. They were joined by Suso Gospel choir and their amazing music directors Eimear and Claire Crehan. It was a great privilege and a pleasure to be part of this project, by recording and mixing their CD. It also shows that a group of people who never saw themselves being able to sing in public or produce their own album could in fact create something very special: not just their own CD, but a wonderful sense of solidarity within the group, and inspiration among the wider community.
