Written by Paul Conlon. Posted in Glengormley School of Traditional Music

Please note that the mid-term break begins 31stOctober and therefore there will be no classes on Thursday 03 November.

Classes recommence on Thursday 10 November at the usual times.

GSOTM Children’s Sunday seisiúns are starting on Sunday 30th October in StBernard’s Parish Centre from 2-4 pm. We are hoping to organise a monthly seisiún to encourage our young musicians to play together as a group and develop their love and enjoyment of Irish Traditional music. All levels and abilities are welcome to come and join in.

Glengormley School of Traditional Music will hold their Annual General Meeting on Thursday 24th November after classes at approximately 9.40 pm. This will take place in the foyer and we are hoping that there will be a good turnout of students and parents. As you will already have read we require a new treasurer – Paddy Duffy is stepping down from the position after faithfully serving for thirteen years. If anyone is interested in becoming involved in GSOTM as treasurer, or helping out by joining the committee, please speak to Ray or any other member of the committee. AGM Motions and Nomination Forms are available on our website

The final night of this term is Thursday 08th December. This night will include a short concert and prize giving ceremony. Refreshments will also be served at the interval.
