Intergenerational Choir Fundraiser
31 December 2021
Colaiste Mhuire Co Ed Thurles have joined up with Padre Pio nursing home to bring you this energetic number 'You Can't Stop the Beat' from Hairspray.
The intergenerational choir made up of the students of Colaiste Mhuire Co-Ed and the residents of Padre Pio has been a yearly highlight for all involved since 2017.
Due to Covid19 this year, we were unable to visit, sing and dance with the residents of Padre Pio so we got our thinking caps on and came up with the idea to move our intergenerational choir to an online platform.
The music and drama department at CMCO have been working hard the past few weeks, recording students' vocals and filming many clips of the students and staff and the residents at Padre Pio have been dusting off their dancing shoes for our music video!
CMCO & Padre Pio are releasing this song on social media in the hopes to raise funds for the local SVP and we hope it brings a bit of joy to you all. The students and staff have worked so hard in creating this video and St Vincent de Paul is very important to so many individuals and families. Please support if you can in any way possible.
