Also an accomplished harpist and singer, Marie-Thérèse was a member of Anuna, the original chorus in Riverdance. In 2003 she realized a life long dream when she set up the Cavan Academy of Music. The school teaches a range of instruments and styles of music and welcomes students of all ages.

Marie-Thérèse’s most recent venture to date is the completion of this, her piano album, ‘Another April Day’. The album features the 60 piece Moldovan orchestra. The cd features the title track, an original composition by Marie-Thérèse with lyrics written by her father, Tommy, and both piano and vocals performed by the artist herself.
