Music Generation Cavan/Monaghan, Leitrim, Longford, and Roscommon launch Creative Sounds, a collaborative, inclusive music project for young people, presented in partnership with Music Network.
Music Generation Local Music Education Partnerships in Cavan/Monaghan, Leitrim, Longford, and Roscommon have joined forces with Music Network to launch an innovative musical project dedicated to young musicians across the mid-west. The project, led by acclaimed musician, composer and musical director Sid Peacock, will initiate an inclusive space for young musicians from across each county to collaborate and create. The programme participants will work together to compose, perform and record an original piece of music inspired by a range of musical genres. This unique partnership between four Music Generation areas and Music Network means young musicians from rural Ireland can engage and learn from internationally recognised, professional musicians.
Local Music Generation Musician Educators from across the four counties will collaborate on a monthly basis with guest professional musicians invited to come together for this project by Music Network. The aim of this collaborative effort is to create a new piece of music that will be interpreted, recorded, and performed by the young musicians.
Between the monthly sessions, Musician Educators will continue the development of the work at a local level with the young musicians, preparing them for their final performance in Longford, on Saturday, 19th November 2022.
