Music and Good Company - The Irish Band

Last night the seminary's Irish Band entertained a crowd of seminarians, faculty and staff, and friends of the seminary in the seminary coffeehouse.

The music included a number of soloists and instrumentalists.

The Irish Band gathers to begin their first song.

An enjoyable evening such as this has great potential for a number of stories by our present (and future!) journalism students, including though certainly not limited to:

- How and why the Irish Band was established
- The story behind the musical talents of the band members
- How evenings of music and camaraderie contribute to the culture of the seminary

Enjoy the pictures!

Father Pius X Harding contributes his musical talents.

Father Paschal Cheline was honored with a song sung by Brother Basil Lawrence.

Abbot Peter Eberle, Cindy May, and Carmelite Brother Jason Parrott laugh and sing along with the Irish Band.
