Now in its 7th year, the apprentice ensemble programme offers a group of musicians dedicated tuition time with the world famous Galway Ensemble in Residence – ConTempo Quartet and much more besides.

Over the past seven years ConTempo have mentored all types of ensembles – everything from a ‘Cello Duo, Piano Quartet and String Trio to a Saxophone Quartet. Each of these ensembles was provided with practice space and resources to further their instrumental proficiency both as individual players and within ensemble playing. They were mentored, tutored and advised on a monthly basis by ConTempo Quartet and also provided with a number of performance opportunities as part of The Galway Music Residency programme.

The prestigious position of Apprentice Ensemble will take place over 12 months running April to April. The position is offered to established ensembles (Irish and international) wanting to further enrich their experience of ensemble playing and may also suit established musicians or teachers coming together as an ensemble for the first time. One thing is certain – all will benefit from ConTempo’s extensive performance, competition and teaching experience.

Closing date for the Apprentice Ensemble Scheme is 12th April 2013 with auditions happening in Galway the following week.  The Application form is available on the website at or by post.
