The idea came about as a result of the passing of Winston Bagnall, and his great love for music. The Academy put together a programme of weekly classes where the groups worked on Songs and percussion with project director Aideen Byrne, with the vision of recording a CD in memory of Winston.

This Friday, June 21, this vision will be a reality as they launch their CD “Reach for the Stars” at 7.30pm in St. Mary’s Youth Centre, Tullamore.

Exciting news is that there will be a special guest video link appearance at the Launch by Winston’s favourite Country Artist “Daniel O’Donnell”. The CD is being dedicated to the memory of the Winston Bagnall.
