St Agnes Violin Project - Support them in the Flora Mini Marathon!


St Agnes Violin Project Crumlin is a fabulous project bringing music tuition free to the children of St Agnes School Crumlin. Every child can learn, all tuition and instruments are provided free.
The project has had astouding success in a short period of time...

Pupils and past pupils of the school have gained places at competitive auditions in Dublin Youth Orchestras, a remarkable achievement in such a short time. DYO is opening the door to a lifetime's involvement with music these young players.
Two players recently joined Fingal County Youth Orchestra. In 2007 the school won the RTE Lyric FM Moladh an Cheoil /Music in School Award. This was followed by an TIMES Living Dublin Award in December 2007 and in February 2008 by an Irish Aviation Authority Youth Achievement Award received at the Festival of Youth Orchestras organised by the Irish Association of Orchestras. In March 2008 the Orchestra won the Miller Cup for Primary School Orchestra at the Inter-Schools Festival at Wesley College, and were runners-up in 2009.
The Orchestra takes the Royal Irish Academy of Primary School Orchestra Examination in June each year. They gained 95% in the examination of the Royal Irish Academy of Music in June 2009, and performed on Sunday 1st November in the Shelbourne Hotel at the Dublin Region permanent tsb High Achievers' Concert. In June 2010 they received 92% in the same exam. In 2010 they performed for the first time at Dublin Feis Ceoil.
