   Cllr McCarthy noted that Cork City is vibrant in drama education, various musical genres, musical theatre and all forms of opera, all of which are brought to the Cork masses through stage schools and theatres. “The city proudly can boast being an ongoing European Capital of Culture. Many personalities and more have done so much for music and drama education over many years in the city. All inspire and forge a sense of community, charity of heart, togetherness and education, skill building and lifelong learning approaches”. Continuing Cllr McCarthy highlighted that Cork City Musical Society brings together many of these strands; in particular it focuses on the aspect of community building and the promotion of musical theatre amongst adults and the idea of inclusivity and self-development for all who wish to engage with it”.
