Muireann McDonnell has performed a beautiful version of the standard classic, Moon River. Muireann gives her own and charming interpretation of the song. She thanks Thornton Pianos and their crew for the opportunity to play the restored Challen upright piano and the support they give musicians in Ireland.
Moon River was composed by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer. It was originally performed by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s and has been covered by many artists and Andy Williams is particularly known for his version of the song.
Muireann represented Ireland at the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest with Suile Glasa.
Ana Kodra has had a big success by winning the top Grand Prix prize for her age category, 10-13 years, at the WAPA World Vision – World Association of Performing Arts International Contest 2020 via an online competition consisting of 40 countries.
