Seventy of Ireland’s finest young wind, brass and percussion players have been selected to play in this year’s Irish Youth Wind Ensemble – a week-long music course where young musicians can hone their talents under the guidance of professional conductors and musicians. The course will this year culminate in two concerts taking place in University Concert Hall, Limerick at 7.30pm on Friday, 26 July and in O’Reilly Theatre, Belvedere College, Dublin on Saturday, 27 July at 6.30pm
They will perform exciting and energetic music for large scale ensembles and will be conducted by Ronan O’Reilly, Director of the Artane School of Music, and guest conductor Dr Ken Dye, Director of Bands at the prestigious University of Notre Dame. The highly accomplished young musicians of the ensemble come from across Ireland and will work intensively in a week-long residential course in the University of Limerick with some of Ireland’s top brass, wind and percussion tutors.
