GMR announces new Apprentice Ensembles
The Galway Music Residency is delighted to announce that it has accepted two new Apprentice Ensembles to its Apprentice Programme for the remainder of the 2016/2017 season. The Amoroso Quartet from Limerick and Galway-based Viola and Piano Duo Eilish Devine (viola) and Maja Elliott (piano) join our existing flute and voice duo, Miriam Kaczor (flute) and Lorna Breen (soprano) to receive guidance and coaching from the ConTempo Quartet.
The Apprentice Programme now in its 10th year is rooted in GMR’s commitment to community and education projects and provides advanced instrumental students and young professionals an opportunity to further their experience of ensemble playing. During their time on the programme, the ensembles are coached and advised on a monthly basis by each member of ConTempo Quartet.
Galway audiences will have an opportunity to hear our Apprentice Ensembles on 21 May at 3pm in the Aula Maxima.
