PEACE PROMS 2017

Sharing a love for music and passion for peace 

Peace Proms 2017 kicked off last weekend with an epic sell out performance at the Echo Arena, Liverpool, and returns to Irish shores for concerts at the RDS, Dublin this Saturday and Sunday, before moving on to the SSE Arena Belfast on Feb. 26th and Limerick University on March 4th & 5th. Almost 500 schools (25,000 children) from right across the island are preparing to let their voices be heard in this year’s Peace Proms concerts.

Peace Proms 2017 promises to be a celebration of youth, music, energy and sheer talent on a monumental scale.  Symbolically dressed in white to represent Peace and Harmony, the Children’s Peace Choirs will perform alongside the critically acclaimed Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland in a programme filled with family favourites and powerful peace anthems like Michael Jackson’s ‘Heal the World’ and John Farnham’s ‘You’re the Voice’. These entertaining and breathtaking choral and orchestral productions are suitable for all the family – young and old. The programme has something for everyone from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ to a 90’s House Dance Club Mix. It is impossible to leave Peace Proms concert without feeling uplifted, renewed and full of hope for a brighter future.

Peace Proms 2017 will be conducted by internationally acclaimed music educator Greg Beardsell who is renowned for his extraordinary ability to lead powerful and exhilarating performances. Prepare to be entertained by all-Ireland champion Uilleann Piper Cormac Keegan; blown away by power-house vocalists Zena Donnelly and Lauren Murphy; dazzled by local virtuoso rock-violinist Patricia Treacy, and captivated by tenor Eoin Hynes.

The line up of performers also includes a spectacular array of champion dancers from the Michelle Johnston School of Highland Dance in Belfast and the Rooney, O’Malley, Maguire School of Irish Dance in Newry; as well as champion solo Bagpiper Grahame Harris and the World Champion Colmcille Pipe and Drum Corps from Derry/Londonderry.

Peace Proms is an internationally recognized Arts & Peace initiative, which actively engages almost 30,000 school children in Ireland and the UK. CBOI is a registered charity in Ireland, the UK and the USA and is totally NOT-FOR-PROFIT. We are deeply indebted to all our supporters and sponsors for helping us to bring the joy on music and peace to children, families, schools and communities throughout the world.
