About this Event

Celebrate Early Music in Limerick with the launch of H.I.P.S.T.E.R.

New Limerick-based Early Music organisation H.I.P.S.T.E.R. celebrates Early Music with a day of concerts, exhibitions and educational events

H.I.P.S.T.E.R.—Ireland's Historically Informed Performance Series, Teaching, Education and Research—brings music, instruments and dance from centuries ago to Limerick audiences with their official launch on Saturday, the 7th of November (rescheduled from a COVID-19 cancellation on 21 March 2020). The organisation celebrates Early Music with a compact one-day festival, which gathers together performers in chamber concerts of music from the Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque periods. An exhibit of early instruments and a Renaissance dance workshop are two other crowd-pleasers on this unique day, featuring music from over a thousand years. H.I.P.S.T.E.R.’s founders and co-directors, historical keyboardist Yonit Kosovske and singer Vlad Smishkewych, are joined by historical dance instructor Felicity Maxwell, recorder player Theresa Burton, Michelle O’Connor on medieval vielle and fiddle, and viola da gamba player Sarah Groser, also on vielle.

All events are being held at the People’s Museum of Limerick in the heart of the Treaty City’s Georgian Quarter.

All concerts last around 40 minutes and are followed by informal Q&A sessions with the musicians.
