Blow the dust off your trumpet Orchestra takes over Huston Station

Last year my Mum Patrica, took her dusty violin off the wall after many years (lets not be rude here, but many years!), to become part of the “blow the dust off your trumpet” orchestra. The orchestra invited seniors, who in some cases had not played their instrument for 50 years, to pick it up again. It was put together as part of the Bealtaine Festival (celebrating creativity in older people) with some guidance from the RTE symphonic orchastra. They also preformed a concert in the national concert hall at Christmas time.   It really does show you that there’s nothing stopping us doing anything . The opportunities are always out there.

Here they are launching this years Bealtaine Festival at Huston Station last week. Aren’t they amazing?
