Corda Connections 2017: a creative music camp for young string players
For a second successive year, Music Generation Louth presents Corda Connections – a creative music camp designed to give young string players of all ages and abilities the chance to learn and collaborate with musicians from Music Generation Louth and the Irish Chamber Orchestra.
The camp takes place from 14 to 16 August 2017, 10am to 3pm daily, at the PJ Carroll Building, DkIT (Dundalk IT).
Together, participants will enjoy an opportunity to arrange, create, and improvise their own music, develop skills in small group and full ensemble performance, and connect with other young string players from the county.
For a flavour of what to expect at this year's camp, look back on the video captured during Corda Connections 2016:
Corda Connections caters for young classical strings and fiddle players aged 8 to 18 years – from those just starting out on their journey or instrumental learning to the very experienced looking to develop new skills. All participants will be grouped according to their age, ability and interests.
Participation costs €25 per musician, and enrolment is now open online at the Music Generation Louth website.
Please note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Early booking is advised.
