David Hennessy Musical & Dramatic Society Presents
From Me To You
David Hennessy Musical & Dramatic Society are delighted to present “From Me To You” starring local singer Glenn Murphy (Tenor). After his success travelling the world with Celtic Woman on their international tour, singing onstage in the 3 Arena for Adele, and appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres show, he is excited to be performing in Waterford once again. With Musical Direction by David Hayes (Riverdance, Voice Of Ireland). Guest singers will be Waterford’s very own Julie Power (Soprano) and Paul Kavanagh (Tenor). There will also be a choir incorporating students from David Hennessy Stage School Waterford City. Glenn and guests will take you on a journey with some of the most iconic, magical and memorable songs ever written, from musicals and beyond. With such classics as “Feed The Birds”, “A Million Dreams”, “Raglan Road”, “The Sound of Music”, “Green Fields of France” and many more, this promises to be one of the musical highlights of the year.
Glenn has been a member of the UCD Choral Scholars since 2011 and a member of the UCD Ad Astra Performing Arts Academy since 2013. He has been an ambassador for the college during his excursions with the UCD Choral Scholars, including competing at international level in Italy and Hungary, along with a tour of North America in 2014. Glenn is currently studying voice with Síle McCarthy and is preparing for competing in this year’s ESB Feis Ceoil. Upcoming appearances include performances of Monteverdi’s ‘Vespro della Beata Virgine’ with early music ensemble Sestina in Belfast and Dublin this April.

Facebook and Twitter went bananas for Waterford singer and actor Glenn Murphy and his collaborator Ronan Scolard after Adele invited both to take to the 3 Arena stage to perform before a full house on Saturday night.This came in the wake of the duo’s online medley of four Adele ballads going viral in spectacular fashion last week, with Time, MTV, USA Today and Mashable posting their beautiful rendition.Her.ie’s Facebook upload alone had generated almost 8.5 million uploads as we went to press on Monday afternoon, all of which prompted a wowed Adele to invite the duo on stage last Saturday to deliver a repeat performance. It all felt a far cry from the De La Salle College Hall that Glenn commanded during his secondary school days!With local and national media outlets keen to hear what Glenn has made of a whirlwind couple of days, the man of the moment told The Munster Express that an international media source had secured first refusal on an interview with both himself and Ronan.Posting on his Facebook page on Monday morning, Glenn wrote: “Okay. So. What the F*CK happened last night?! This absolutely 100% is a dream but there’s videos of it?! How is that even POSSIBLE?! Thank you an unending amount of times to everyone who’s reached out, I’ll be in touch eventually. @ronanscolard – this is something we can tell the grandkids at 80. And to @adele – you beautiful, beautiful queen. You changed our lives last night. We love you. X”
