GMR Making Waves with Youth Orchesta

Following a successful first year Sym-phonic Waves, the new youth orchestra for the West of Ireland, takes flight again this summer under its new guardian Music Generation Galway County, Galway City & Roscommon. The Galway Music Residency is delighted to support the Sym-phonic Waves project as it enters this new stage of development.

Over the coming months, the Galway ConTempo Quartet will work with orchestra members through a series of sectional and chamber music workshops. The quartet are delighted to be working with the orchestra's new conductor, Dr James Kavanagh, with whom they have collaborated previously.

Mentorship is a very important aspect of the Galway Music Residency's education activities and we are delighted to be able to offer the young people of Galway and the West of Ireland this opportunity through its work with Sym-phonic Waves.
