A huge thank you to Ms O’Brien for the presentation and performance she gave to the 5th year music class about the Irish Harp and Harping tradition which the students are currently studying.
Ms O’Brien spoke to the students about the history and timbre of the instrument and about the role that Meath harpist & composer Turlough O’Caolan played in the tradition. She performed some of O’Carolan’s most well known compositions for the class and a beautiful ancient Irish tune called ‘Eibhlí Gheal Chiúin’.
It was a great opportunity for the students to hear a live performance of their course work.
