Christmas 2023

This year we are delighted to be invited to perform at SOLAS – a brand new stage and immersive experience of light and sound celebrating Christmas presented by Cork City Council!

The Solas stage is located on Emmet Place (near Cork Opera House and the Crawford Art Gallery) – see full details HERE.

Music Generation Cork City performances at Solas will include:

  • 4pm, Fri 1st Dec: Young rappers and singers from The Hut Youth Project CDYS
  • 5.15pm, Fri 1st Dec: Young rappers and singers from The Kabin Studio with GMCBeats
  • 6pm, Sun 10th Dec: Young rock/pop group Music Mash Up from Mayfield
  • 4pm, Sat 16th Dec: Mahon Community Concert Band (in partnership with Cork Academy of Music) – TBC

And if you pop by the Solas stage on Sat 9th Dec, you might spot two familiar faces performing with their choirs! – our very own Aoibheann Carey-Philpott conducting the Carrigtwohill Gospel Choir, and our MGCC coordinator Claire Layton performing with the Marina Singers!

Also, at 4pm on Wed 6th Dec, there will be a public Christmas performance at Hollyhill Library by the young musicians from Foróige Linkpoint UBU and The Kabin Studio (with GMCBeats) – All welcome!

We’re lucky to have such talent of all ages in MGCC – from the little children to teens to our wonderful team & musician-educators! Looking forward to hearing the festive musical magic you all create this Christmas!
