December has come around and our programmes have finished a very different and sometimes challenging term- but the creative energy has never let up, and we have not one but TWO Christmas-themed collaborations to share!
Our Winter Song – Winter Jam Cork City 2020
A beautiful newly composed Christmas song for 2020 in a collaboration between students of School of the Divine Child (SDC/Lavanagh Centre) and Community Music degree students of CIT Cork School of Music, Music Mash Up and Music Generation Cork City. It really captures that wintery Christmas feeling and it is clear how much the children and young people enjoyed making it! You might even pick up a new Lámh sign or too for the season that’s in it- bain sult as!
Jingle Bell Rock with Music Generation Waterford
Presenting to you the fantastic young wind, brass and percussion players from both Music Generation Waterford and Music Generation Cork City performing Jingle Bell Rock!
This collaboration project took place online with a series of workshops led by Music Generation Musician Educators for over 75 young wind, brass and percussion players from both Waterford and Cork City. Well done to all the young musicians and educators for their dedication and hard work in making this happen, and we’re sure new musical connections and friendships were made along the way!
