Echo Echo Ensemble Artists, Ayesha Mailey and Kelly Quigley, and Ronan McKee from Play Percussion recently completed a movement and drumming programme with two Newbuildings primary schools.
The course took place over 12 weeks through autumn and winter 2019/20 culminating in a sharing event with teachers, family and guests at Echo Echo Studios in February 2020.
Have a look at the beautiful collection of images from the final rehearsals and sharing event by Patrick Duddy Photography below.
A big thank you to the Derry City and Strabane District Council Good Relations Fund who supported the project and also to Council officers Pauline O’Neill and John Kerr.
And of course huge thanks to all of teachers and staff at St Columba’s PS and Newbuildings PS who were an absolute pleasure to work with, and to all of the pupils who took part with great commitment and had a lot of fun.
We look forward to the next time!
