It is the intention of the Commissions Strand to animate young people’s experience of music participation and performance. This is as a counterpoint to the excellent music education experience being provided throughout the other Music Generation Wicklow strands. The Commissions Strand will be delivered across the MGW Programme with the same integral focus on quality of both the music practice and participation experience for young people.
