This May Bank Holiday weekend will see the return of Tuned In!, a Music Generation Sligo Masterclass and Performance Programme at The Model, in partnership with Sligo International Chamber Music Festival. This youth strand of the festival will offer a short, intensive chamber music experience for young musicians and their tutors, specially-curated by Professor James Cavanagh.
This is an opportunity for young players to develop ensemble playing within the classical genre, engaging with high level artists. Tuned In! will combine masterclasses and performances as participants deepen their understanding of music and improve their playing within the nurturing environment of Sligo International Chamber Music Festival. Masterclasses will be led by members of the acclaimed Vogler Quartet and other festival performers, while ensemble activities will be directed by Professor James Cavanagh. The weekend also brings young musicians into the audience to experience live performances of an international standard at one of Ireland's leading chamber music events.
Expressions of interest for Tuned In! are now being accepted. Please download, complete and email the form to MusicGenerationSligo@msletb.ie before Friday 23 February 2018. Please note submission of this form does not guarantee a place on the weekend.
