My sincere thanks to all those involved in my last concert with Cavatina Singers. I was especially proud of all the members of Cavatina for the wonderful performance last night and will miss working with the choir. I also would like to thank the very talented soloists; Frances Gregory, Hannah Poulsom, Eleias Roberts and Meilir Jones, my esteemed colleagues from the RWCMD; Calum Fraser, Victoria Pilley and Michael Pilley and special thanks to accompanist Philip May. It has been an absolute privilege working with you all and I feel honoured to have had the post of conductor with Cavatina Singers! I wish you all the very best and no doubt you will all have many more successful adventures ahead. Stay in touch, Derek


Special thanks to Kate Larkin, Eimear Reynolds, Louise McGuinness, Maria Mattthews, Mary Clonlisk O’Connor, Noeline O’Connor, Mary Doyle, Mairéad Whelan, Lauraine McDermott, Marie Dolan and accompanist Sophie Gallagher for completing a wonderful Easter choral project.
