Exciting Opportunity to Collaborate with our Trad Orchestra

Music Generation Laois are establishing a new group to take part in a unique once-off performance with our Trad Orchestra, working with Ollie Tumner a percussion specialist from the UK and our own percussion specialist, Eddie O’Neill. This once-off performance will last approximately 7 minutes, and showcase at Music @ the Malt House in Stradbally on the 4 of May, 2019.

This project is for musicians age 12 upwards, and is focused on body percussion (a combination of clapping, feet stomping, clicking etc). Training will be provided (we do not expect you to be an expert in body percussion to take part!).

Rehearsals take place in Laois Music Centre, Church Avenue, Portlaoise on the following dates:

 Thurs 28 Feb, 6:30pm-7pm

Thurs 14 March, 6:30pm-7:30pm

Thurs 28 March, 6:30pm-7:30pm

Thurs 4 April 6:30pm-7:30pm

Thurs 11 April, 6:30pm-7:30pm

You must also be available for a final rehearsal on Fri 3 May (times tbc), and performance on Sat 4 May (times tbc).

Participation is FREE OF CHARGE, open to students of Laois School of Music and Music Generation Laois, however, you must adhere to the schedule, repeated absenteeism will not be permitted.
