Their programme included two
movements of THE COVID SAGA, composed by Robert Mahon for his orchestra in Kiltra School of Music, arrangements of pieces by Haydn and Beethoven, a traditional Irish folk tune orchestrated by Seamus Doyle and a musical story of a girl and a tiger in the pandemic, narrated by Raphael Kelly.
Children from the different orchestras introduced elements in the programme and exchanged jokes with Smiler the Clown.
Pet photographs of the players pets and their drawings are also on view on the recording above.
A highlight of the programme was the introduction of one lucky pet from each orchestra to the audience Live on Zoom– these include a snake, a rabbit, a hen, a dwarf hamster, guinea pigs, a parrot, a tortoise, fish as well as beloved cats and a dog.
