The 3rd Annual Variety Concert took place on Thursday 2nd Nov 2017. With some fantastic local talent entertaining the audience with Bold as Brass opening the show and some of Kilkenny's finest singers including Michael Hayes - Emma McGuinness - Elen Stapleton - Nicola Brennan - Declan Taylor and Emmet Donlan. Eamo's All Stars lead by the fantastic Eamon Cahill had the audience clapping in their seats from the local students who he teaches. Emmet Donlan's section included the gorgeous song "Bring Him Home" from Les Miserables and finished with "If I loved you" from the musical Carousel.
Kilkenny School Of Dance under the direction of Finn Power and Gemma Grant transported you to the streets of Paris through contemporary dance and lyrical ballet and the students are highly skilled in all areas of dance and this was clearly shown on stage on the night. The show also had a fantastic local comedian Michael Rice who's Mum was in the audience and that didn't even stop his risky jokes from getting the laughs throughout his performance.
John Treacy who is a singer songwriter performed his debut single on the night and ended with "Gloria" from Van Morrison but I think Johns version could be a hit if he released it on his next album. Finishing the show was "Fly The Flag Of Freedom" directed by Declan Taylor and contained some gorgeous duets - solos and group numbers which received great praise from the audience on leaving the auditorium. Wishing Siobhan Cody the very best for the next Annual Variety show.
