Transition Year Work Experience Music Projects
Applications now open for 2019.
This is a Transition Year Work Experience Week, with project ensembles and professional seminars. In 2018 over 130 young musicians from 25 counties came together for a fabulous week of music making. There is no charge for this course and all materials will be provided. It will take place in the CIT Cork School of Music in Cork City centre from Mon 1 April to Fri 5 April 2019. It has a number of different strands:
The Transition Year Project Orchestra
Into its third year, this has been very successful with a full Symphony Orchestra of approximately eighty preparing and performing a programme of orchestral standards such as Finlandia, Force of Destiny, and Dvorak’s Slavonic Dance under the direction of young professional conductor Conor Palliser.
