Our 2023 concert welcomed the Swingle Swingers as the headline act to perform in St. Columb's Hall (Derry) and also St. Patrick's Cathedral (Dublin) as part of an Irish tour.


Aimee-Grace Doherty - the school's Roy Adams Memorial Piano Scholar - opened for the Swingles in Dublin whilst students from St. Joseph's Boys' School were the opening act in Derry, performing their original song that they were working on with the St. Columb's School of Music Tutors.
