He said: ''I know that I speak for everyone who has been involved in the development of this magnificent new venue in welcoming the Tullamore Musical Society to Esker. "The centre is now nearing completion with finishing touches being applied by the build and design teams. We are delighted to know that our friends in the Musical Society will be coming in to perform in the Springtime. I know they will find that the facilities and supports at Esker will be second to none.The Esker Arts Centre will be rooted in the community and the Tullamore Musical Society is an integral part of that community, going back to its foundation, almost 70 years ago, in 1954. I earnestly hope that this will be the beginning of a long-lasting and mutually-advantageous relationship between the Esker Arts Centre and the Tullamore Musical Society.

"We are looking forward to some wonderful music and some wonderful evenings in April and May.”
