The choir from 4th and 5th classes had a hugely enjoyable day taking part in the Peace Proms 2017 concert in the R.D.S on Sunday February 6th. Read all about it below and check out the pictures of the choir in action.
PEACE PROMS 2015
On Saturday 31st of January, 4th and 5th classes from Coosan N.S went to the RDS in Dublin to sing in the choir for Peace Proms. There was an orchestra to play each song as well. We were accompanied by Ms Harney, Ms Thompson, Mr Reynolds, Ms Lantry, Ms Elliot and Ms Doyle.
We left the school at 9.30. We arrived at the RDS at 11.00. Then we went backstage and went to the bathroom. There were lots of schools there.
Then we had a rehearsal with the orchestra. They played the songs we sang. I saw lots of instruments-there were flutes, violins, drums, trumpets and more.
After that we went backstage and had lunch and went to the bathroom again. Then it was showtime. The orchestra played a few songs and the conductor conducted. I saw my mam, my dad, my brother, my sister and my granny. Then we sang. It was fun singing and dancing in front of everyone. There were jazz dancers in red dresses and Irish dancers and for the Monster Medley people dressed up. It was lots of fun.
After it was over, we got back on the bus. We stopped at Applegreen. We got Burger King and sweets. Then we got back on the bus and went back to school. We got back at 9.00.
It was lots of fun. I loved all the instruments. I’d love to do it all again.
My favourite part of Peace Proms was...
… when all the other acts performed. These included singers, dancers, violin players and lots of other instruments played but my favourite was the violin. I had an extremely good day.
...when I got to see the whole orchestra. I also saw a lot of instruments that I hadn’t seen before-harp, bass drums and bagpipes. I liked the bagpipes because they looked and sounded silly.
...when we were singing the Monster Medley. We sang the Aadam’s family, Attacks of the Killer Tomatoes and Ghostbusters. It was my favourite because some of the teachers were dressed up for the songs. There were two people in wigs and in costumes, a person tin Ghostbusters thins and a big Marshmallow Man.
...when the orchestra played James Bond songs. It was loud but still fantastic.
…seeing the orchestra, There were lots of drums and trumpets. There were bagpipes and dancers too. It was really cool.
...when we sang the Monster medley because there were people dressed up as monster and ghosts. It was really funny!
...when the Irish dancers did a really nice routine. The name of the dance school was ‘Dwyer School of Irish Dance’. They were all very good dancers.
...when we sang the Monster Medley because there were people dressed up as monster and ghosts. It was really funny!
...when I saw a girl playing the violin and she gave a great performance. It was a great experience but also extremely frightening because there were a lot of people watching us.
...when we sang the Monster medley because there was funny dancers and people dressed up in monster costumes!
...when we were singing the Monster Medley. People came dressed as monsters. It was very funny. I could hardly sing, I was too busy watching the monsters.
..the Monster medley because people came out and was running away from the Ghostbusters-it was soooo funny!
...was the bus ride-it was great banter.
...when we were doing the Monster Medley because some of the Aadam’s family, some of the characters from the Blob, the Ghostbusters and Marshmallow man were there.

The talented Cross Border Orchestra were brilliant. I saw a girl play the violin and she gave a fantastic performance. It was an experience of a lifetime. My favourite part was on the bus.
We had a great brilliant time. There were 3000 people watching us. There were 1000 children, incuding us, singing ‘Let it go’, ‘Happy’ and lots more. My favourite part was the bus ride up. My least favourite part was waiting in line for my chicken nuggets and chips. There were 30 people in the orchestra playing wonderful music. I hope I can do this all again.
We had an awesome time. I was amazed how many children were there, around 300 or more kids and 1000 people watching! My favourite song was Ghostbusters. On the way back we stopped at the Applegreen.
We met the talented Cross Border Orchestra and we had a great time. We saw the girl playing the violin. My favourite part was the bus and the performance and my least favourite part was waiting for my food.
We had a joyful time. It was a fantastic experience but also lots of other schools were there. The talented Cross Border Orchestra were brilliant. I saw a girl play the violin and she gave an amazing act. Then on the way back we got Burger King.
We had an amazing time and also went to Burger King.
Peace Proms was all amazing but I have to say my favourite part was Apple green and the back of the bus! We got loads of rubbish at Burger King and the little shop. On the bus we were singing and dancing! We played loads of tricks on each other.
