The Buttermarket was buzzing with music, theatre, magic and dance on Saturday 1st October, as students from Enniskillen Royal Grammar school took centre stage as part of the annual FLive festival.
Performing Arts students Usna McErlane, Sam Lindsay, Alana Harron and Stephen Humphreys, took responsibility for the music stage, inviting post primary schools from across Fermanagh to showcase their musical talents. The varied music programme kicked off with Enniskillen Royal Grammar school’s Elana Mulligan who performed two solos, one of which was her own beautiful composition. The chamber choir followed with a beautiful rendition of ‘Red is the Rose’. Alana Harron and Stephen Humphreys got the audience’s foot tapping with “I’m Feeling Good’.
In an interlude from the musical programme the A2 Performing Arts class entertained the large audience of children and parents with a twist on the Alice in Wonderland tale, especially written for the event and directed by Conor McLaughlin Borlace. The colourful array of characters (costumed by Jay McWilliams) helped Alice get herself ready for the UN Disney Princess convention by giving her beauty, bravery and brains! Although, the evil Queen tried to thwart Alice, she was no match for her friends.
The sun continued to shine for the Clarinet Quartet, who performed 4 pieces from their repertoire, much to the delight of the audience.
A packed programme featured more music from Mount Lourdes, St Aidan’s, Erne Integrated College as well as magic from Parky and Baby Boogie with Dylan Quinn Dance Theatre to finish off a feast of entertainment for families at FLive 2016.
