St Mary's Church in Enniscorthy was alive with the sound of music recently at the Hello Summer concert hosted by the Enniscorthy Choral Society.

Aislinn O'Leary of the Society said the event had been a great success with around 250 in attendance.

'It was a great night and the star of the show was 13-year-old Emma Murphy from Clonroche. She is an exceptionally talented pianist and is currently on Grade 7. We had hired a baby grand piano for the concert and her performance was spectacular.'

In addition there were performances by Roisin Dempsey, Credo and of course Enniscorthy Choral Society while Emma was accompanied by Yvonne Collier.

Aislinn said the choral society were delighted with how well the concert had went saying that it is a bi-annual concert that the society organises showcasing both their talents and the talents of other musicians.

The Enniscorthy Choral Society which boasts around 25 members recently enjoyed great success at the choral awards in Kilkenny taking home a first and second prize. 'At the concert we sang the pieces we performed in Kilkenny and we also had a solo performance from John Burke O'Leary.

'In total we sang in five different languages at the concert', said Aislinn. 'Czech, Italian, Latin, Irish and English.'
