Limerick youth orchestra tunes in to Ukrainian appeal

The Ceol na Mara Chamber Orchestra with musical director Oonagh Keogh (centre).

A LIMERICK youth orchestra has so far raised over €1,800 for the Limerick Redemptorists’ Ukraine appeal with an impressive performance of a piece by Ukrainian composer Miroslav Skoryk.

The Ceol na Mara Chamber Orchestra is a youth string orchestra based in Limerick with 28 members ranging in ages from eight to 18. Under the direction of Oonagh Keogh, the orchestra meets once a month in the Irish Chamber Orchestra Studio  in UL.

On Sunday, the youth orchestra videoed a performance of the piece, ‘Melody’, to raise funds to help Ukraine.
