This has ended for 2017 and has been a great success. Sixty three students from all over Ireland came together to form a symphony orchestra under the baton of Conor Palliser. After a week of rehearsals and sectionals a lunchtime concert included Sibelius's Finlandia, Bizet's l'Arlesienne Suite, Holst's Moorside March, and Dvorak's Slavonic Dance N.8. The retiring collection raised over €400 for the Cork University Hospital Charity.
This will definitely happen again in 2018 and will be expanded to cater for instrumentalists in other genres. CIT Cork School of Music will offer a special work experience week in Spring 2018 for those students who wish to gain a real insight to the professional demands upon and working routine of a musician. Suitable for young musicians in transition year 2017-18 - who have achieved approximately grade five at least on an orchestral instrument - the ensemble will have:
- Daily group rehearsals with a professional conductor
- Sectional rehearsals with experienced orchestral professionals
- Observation opportunities with other CSM ensembles
- Final lunchtime concert in aid of local charities
There is no charge for the participants on this project and please note that it is not a chaperoned residential course. participants are required to attend at CIT Cork School of Music in Cork city centre from 9:00 to 16:00 from Monday to Friday 7. Accomodation, where necessary, can be recommended but will not be co-ordinated by CSM.
