CSM is honoured to have such distinguished Artists-in-Residence and we are very grateful for their support and association with the School. Please note in particular Calendars for the School year, and the section on Health & Safety Matters. We have also included a list of concerts scheduled to take place in CSM and, in addition to concerts and performances by the School’s Performing Groups, we are delighted to be able to collaborate once again with the Cork Orchestral Society in hosting professional concerts. Theatre and Drama groups, and Popular Music groups will stage productions and events throughout the year – keep an eye on our Events page! You are encouraged to go to as many concerts and events as possible – not only are you availing of the opportunity of being inspired by top-class performances, but you are also supporting the professions!
Best wishes for a successful and stimulating year at CSM and I look forward to meeting you at one of our many events.
