Choirs for Cancer – Feb. 1st 2019

To mark World Cancer Day, five secondary school and community choirs combined to highlight cancer awareness at a unique choral event in University College Dublin with the help of Irish singer/songwriter Don Mescall. The event was organised by Professor William Gallagher, Luciana Herda (CBT lab) and Colette Kearney (Biology Teacher in Mount Sion CBS) with CBT lab members helping on the day. All the speakers were inspirational including CBT lab members Maria Prencipe and Seodhna Lynch who thoroughly enjoyed the enthusiasm of the students.

The response was overwhelming positive: ‘the atmosphere was so wonderful and the buzz really was phenomenal’;  ‘music really does warm the soul’; ‘such inspirational amazing young speakers’ and ‘uplifting and beautiful occasion’ to quote a few.
