Midwest Fleadh 2018

Congratulations to the Center for Irish Music’s passionate and hard-working students who competed at the Midwest Regional Fleadh in St. Louis this year!  The Center for Irish Music sent 36 students with 71 entries, with 54 placing in the top three!

Instructors Norah Rendell, Brian Miller, Hannah Flowers, Chad McAnally, and Mary Vanorny went along on the trip to play with the accompaniment students, support families and lead group competition rehearsals. All in all, it was a very successful trip! All of the students, parents and instructors had a wonderful time getting to know one another better as we enjoyed tunes on the bus, meals together and many good chats throughout the weekend.

We’d like to send a special thanks to the CIM instructors who helped prepare their students for the fleadh this year and to their parents for all of their support.  It takes extra dedication on the part of students and instructors to prepare for such an event, and you all did a wonderful job.  Our students would not have done so well without you.
