Tonight we had our first formal concert in Ireland before a mixed audience of patrons from Ireland, The Netherlands, Germany and Indiana (this group was staying at our hotel and came at our invitation). The students performed a very powerful 50 minute concert in this gorgeous small church. There were numerous highlights to the concert, one of which was an older Irish Gentleman who sang along as we performed the Irish folk song "Tell My Ma". He later mentioned that he hadn't sung that song since he was a young lad. This same gentleman and his wife positively reacted to our performance of You Raise Me Up. The composer of that song was a neighbor of theirs in Dublin. A lot of rehearsing went into preparing the music for our Ireland tour, it was a wonderful experience to perform it at St. Mary's Church is Killarney. Ireland has been very good to us, tonight we wanted to return the favor to Ireland and do something good for them through our performance. Based on our audience response, that was accomplished.
