GMR announces Culture Night line up
Culture night starts early for the Galway Music Residency with a very special lunchtime event in conjunction with NUI Galway, its long term partner. Join the Galway ConTempo Quartet in the Quadrangle of NUI Galway, and explore the theme of 'time' on a charming trail through this iconic building. Wander through the curious surrounds of the Geology corner and lose yourself in dramatic readings from students of Drama, Theatre and Performance, music from ConTempo Quartet and the NUI Galway staff choir, and inspiring works from NUI Galway’s art collection. The event includes an introduction to the James Mitchell Geology Museum, Galway’s ‘hidden museum’. This free event begins at 1pm and is the perfect way to start culture night!
Culture Night continues with a series of pop-up events from ConTempo that evening. Galway’s own quartet will visit Galway Arts Centre (6pm), Shop Street (6:45pm) and the Blue Teapot Theatre (7:30pm) performing musical interludes, punctuating an exciting culture night programme running throughout the city.
Supported by NUI Galway, the Arts Council, Galway City and County Councils and GMIT, admission to these events are free, open to all and early arrival is recommended.
