The performance comes soon after Vincent Received the Irish Association of Youth Orchestras special achievement award “For outstanding artistic achievement and for outstanding promotion of music in the community.” The award was a wonderful recognition for all involved in The Happy Prince production particularly Little John Nee (who wrote and retells Oscar Wilde’s story so beautifully) and Vincent, who wrote the music and conducted all the performances with the Donegal Youth Orchestra and Donegal Youth Choir. The award was presented to Vincent at the National Concert Hall on 9 February.
