A choir from LaGrange, USA, performs at Clounagh

Craigavon has a sister city in the USA called LaGrange in the State of Georgia. A choir from LaGrange is currently touring Ireland. Last week we were delighted to hear them perform a short concert at Clounagh Junior High School.

We also gave the American visitors a taste of Irish music and dance, with performances by talented Clounagh pupils: Hannah and Hannah (Irish dancing); Cherith (singing "You Raise Me Up") accompanied by Andrew on drums; Jonathan (Lambeg drum); Christopher (fiddle).

The audience was made up of pupils from two local Primary Schools: Millington and Hart Memorial. Special thanks to Millington teacher Mr Qua for his musical accompaniment.
