Event description

Description

The Esker Festival Orchestra, Ireland’s most exciting and established peer led orchestra, will return this August for its 5th annual residential and summer tour this August. This year’s tour will see performances in the Emily Anderson Concert Hall, National University of Ireland, Galway on Friday, 10 August at 8pm, in CIT Cork School of Music in association with Cork School of Music, Cork on Saturday, 11 August at 5pm, and in St Ann’s Church, Dawson Street, Dublin 2 on Sunday, 12 August at 5pm.

The musicians will be directed and conducted by Peter Joyce (University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna). The Esker Festival Orchestra brings together Irish and international emerging young professional musicians of the highest calibre.

The 2018 programme consists of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 in A major, Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major with piano soloist Ellen Jansson (Cork School of Music) and 2016.4 by the young Irish composer, Sebastian Adams. It will be perfected over an intensive rehearsal residency in NUI Galway from 6 – 9 August.

The Esker Festival Orchestra was set up in 2014 to provide a high quality, beneficial and meaningful musical opportunity for young emerging musicians from all across Ireland and for the first time to have an orchestra of this quality and scope based in Galway. The orchestra was set up to fill the musical and social void that currently exists in Ireland by allowing young musicians from across the country to perform together, socialise together and to build relationships that will be essential during their personal and professional lives. It promotes and develops orchestral music in Ireland by nurturing the talents of its emerging musicians with as little financial burden as possible on the musicians themselves. Finally it is unique in that it is entirely led and run by its members for its members, allowing those taking part to gather invaluable first-hand experience in the world of orchestral music.

The Esker Festival Orchestra is supported by the Irish Association of Youth Orchestras, The Arts Council, RTÉ Supporting the Arts, NUI Galway and CIT Cork School of Music.

Friday 10 August | Emily Anderson Concert Hall, NUI Galway | 8pm
Saturday 11 August, Curtis Auditorium, CIT Cork School of Music | 5pm
in association with CIT Cork School of Music
Sunday 12 August | St Ann’s Church, Dawson Street, Dublin 2 | 5pm
