We are absolutely thrilled to be able to invite talented young string players, based in Ireland to be part of an exciting opportunity to perform as part of a string orchestra, in a concert playing alongside some of Ireland’s notable professional musicians, including Mia Cooper, concert master of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and players from the ensemble Musici Ireland.
The event offers young string players the experience of working side by side with professionals in an authentic rehearsal/performance environment. Composer Liam Bates will be conducting the concert, which takes place in Wexford on Sunday 28th June, 2020 at 3pm. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we obviously have to take it one day at a time with the concert date, but please be assured that this concert WILL happen once the current situation is resolved.
The programme will include Griegs’ Holberg Suite and Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis.
