The Covid-19 crisis has resulted in a surge of creative ways for people to interact and an amazing effort from Students from the Newry based Flynn Performing Arts school has resulted in an incredible online recording of a Les Misérables classic.

An amazing sixty four of the school members joined together virtually this week to perform this spine tingling version of the Lis Misérables Classic anthem ‘One More Day’.

Lockdowns didn’t deter the choir aged from 4-23 years old creating this magical performance. Each member performed their piece to mobile and Director of Flynn Performing Arts Fiona Flynn, put the amazing rendition together over days, alongside accompanist Danny O’Neill.

The choir members are mainly Newry region, but one performer participated from Canada!

The pupils thoroughly enjoyed this virtual project but can’t wait to sing together once again.

Having graduated with a Masters in Vocal Performance from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, soprano Fiona Flynn established Flynn Performing Arts in 2015 in her hometown of Newry.

The school recently gained national success when its students received the highest marks across the UK and Ireland Trinity Centres in singing examinations. Since its formation in 2015, FPA have put on a bi-annual showcase and have raised in excess of £22,000 for charities including KBRT, Bosco for Africa and Cancer Fund for Children as well as participating in many other local fundraisers and events.
