Celebrating the power of partnership at Music Generation Cavan/Monaghan



On Thursday 27 February 2020 partners from counties Cavan and Monaghan celebrated the official launch of Music Generation in the region. The event provided an opportunity to mark the collaborative work of key stakeholders and agencies in bringing performance music education to children and young people across both counties.

Music Generation Cavan/Monaghan, which is led locally by Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board with support from Cavan and Monaghan County Councils, has already enjoyed enormous success during its first months. Pilot programmes have been rolled out in Primary School and Early Years settings, as well as in partnership with youth clubs and youth organisations. 

A new video, premiered at the launch event at Cavan Town Hall Theatre, captures the value and impact of Music Generation Cavan/Monaghan for the teachers, principals, childcare workers, young people and musician educators who work together to make music education happen for the counties.
