In February 2011 we performed with the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland in the Royal Theatre, Castlebar. We were practising since the previous October and here is a video of the performance. The video is an edited version (50 mins) of the official DVD which is over 2 hours long and available from www.cboi.ie. We hope you enjoy it.
