The Cuala Hall resounded to the beautiful music of Benny Goodman, Stevie Wonder, Shostakovich, James Last and The Beatles on Sat 7th May. It’s not that often that Cuala is graced by an All-Ireland winning team but on this occasion, Irish champions, the Dublin Concert Band, were in town to perform in aid of the 1996 Boys. Led by Simon Healy, (and with Cuala’s own Kelly Price in the Clarinet section), an appreciative Cuala audience could bearly contain their enthusiasm. Some even took matters into their own hands and order was only restored when conductor Derek Mander resumed control of his suberb team. Images in the Cuala Gallery

Well done to everyone who helped to make this such a memorable evening.
