The new academic year has kicked off! Having completed the first week of teaching and met the new students, I am particularly looking forward to the next seven weeks and getting settled in. It’s my ambition to hold a Christmas Concert in December for all the students. Some who were with me last year will be doing exams in the spring so a fun concert will be something diverting to focus on.
In other news, I received a letter today from the U.C.C. Music Department to say that the U.C.C. Choir is being reinstated. This is wonderful news for the university and I hope that the music students in particular avail of it. The choir is open to graduates and members of staff as well as students of the college and will be held on Wednesday nights.
