A lot can happen in a year! As 2018 draws to a close and festive spirit sets in we're thrilled to reflect on what has been another truly extraordinary year of music-making for Music Generation partnerships across Ireland.
It would be almost impossible to capture every magic moment of the past 12 months on camera. Friendships have been forged, ideas brought to life, new skills practiced and mastered. There have been moments of triumph, behind the door of a classroom, community hub or rehearsal space, as well as on grand stages in Ireland and overseas. Partners, parents, tutors and Music Generation teams have once again shown how incredible possibilities can be realised through their drive, commitment and innovation. There has been a whole lot of fun - and of course, there has been music.
