Live at the Seafront - 2024

On April 24th St David's held our annual "Live at the Seafront' concert, an incredible display of talent in our fabulous school community. 


There was an excellent turnout from both members in the school and the local community. The evening had an incredible array of music across several genres and styles. The atmosphere was electric and the Sports Arena was full to the brim with people waiting to hear the amazing performances our students had to offer. 


The performances started at 7.45, with an introduction by Head Boy Matthew Lawless and  Head Girl Lisa Garcia. Finn Morris and Ernie Pust in TY announced the acts on the night and did an excellent job updating the audience on the events to come. 


The evening was kicked off with a bang, with a performance of ‘Suddenly I See’ from Ashley Cahatol, Miles Matthews O'Connor and Willow Evans. 


Following this was a great rendition of Coldplay’s ‘Sky Full of Stars’ by Aoife Smyth, Lucy Finnegan, Mia Williams and Sarah McCloskey. 


Next was a baton twirling spectacular by Kayleigh Lang in 6th year, and an absolutely beautiful rendition of ‘I have Nothing’ by Caoimhe Neiland. 


A special performance from the cast of this year’s TY musical followed, singing ‘Seasons of Love’. It was a lovely opportunity for the cast to perform together again after our fantastic TY musical this year. 


Jay Fairley and Tom Woodley then performed a superb rendition of ‘Somewhere Only We Know’.


Next was a song called ‘Heճo’ which displayed some impressive guitar and singing skills by Arsenii Pasichnyk in 5th year and Monostereo.


Arkleen Lamoste did an amazing job of singing the catchy ‘Still Into You’.


After these performances, Vitality dance group gave the audience an incredible and energetic dance spectacular and brought the house down.


Ashley Cahatol gave the crowd a gorgeous rendition of ‘Nothing Matters’, followed by Ewan Macadam showing off his songwriting skills and great guitar playing with an original song called ‘Obvious’ to bring us into the 15 minute interval. 


After a short break the second half of 'Live at the Seafront' 2024 was kicked off with the wonderful school choir, with hauntingly beautiful renditions of both ‘The Storm’ and ‘Siúil A Rúin’.


Aoibh Anderson sang ‘What Baking Can Do’ from Waitress and brought musical theatre to St David's once again. 


Next was Aaron Evans, Ewan Macadam, Jake Carrol, Miles Matthews O’ Connor, Tom Woodley and Willow Evans, who did an incredible job performing ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams’.


Ailbhe Davis, Fionn Crean Mac Oireachtaigh and Siún Ní Dhálaigh along with Mr Timlin gave us a taster of some fabulous trad music with ‘Club Céilí/ Jim Ward’s Jig’, which got the crowd clapping along.


Freya Duffy and Stella Henrys, with Mr Noonan on the piano, sang the beautiful ‘For Good’ from the musical Wicked, a gorgeous duet that showcased their voices wonderfully.


Ewan Macadam, Jake Carroll, Tom Woodley and Willow Evans gave an astounding performance of ‘In Too Deep’.


The talented Kate Macadam and Sofia McDarby in TY, along with Ewan Macadam on the guitar, sang ‘Blackbird’, followed by James Tritschler in his last performance at St David's, with the excellent ‘Vampire Empire’.


Finally, to end an incredible night that showed the talent and musical prowess St David's have to offer, the school’s music club, with Jay Fairley singing, ended 'Live at the Seafront' 2024 with ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, getting the whole crowd on their feet and singing along after an outstanding night.


A huge congratulations to everyone involved in 'Live at the Seafront' this year, the standard of talent was impeccable. Thank you to everyone who came and supported our school from the audience, the wonderful performers who made the whole school proud, and to all the staff members who made this night possible.
