Music Generation Clare, in collaboration with glór, presents Julie Feeney in concert this Saturday, 12th December at 8pm.
Julie Feeney’s sell-out shows on both sides of the Atlantic have received rave reviews – whether solo, with ensemble, with choirs or with full orchestra – and she composes, arranges and orchestrates all of her own music. Her three albums have been critically acclaimed internationally receiving numerous awards and she has created a whole host of stunning music videos to accompany them. Her opera Bird goes into full production in 2017. Sharp witted, unpretentious and fiercely passionate, Julie Feeney is a genuine artist and a hugely enjoyable performer. After performing shows in Amsterdam, Mexico, Italy, all over Ireland and New York throughout 2015, she is delighted to be back at glór for this very special performance.
Music Generation Clare is part of Music Generation, Ireland’s National Music Education Programme that transforms the lives of children and young people through access to high quality performance music education. In its first eighteen months of operation, through its music tuition programmes, and through partnerships with music education providers, Music Generation Clare has worked with over 1000 children and young people throughout County Clare on vocal, instrumental, songwriting, and early years programmes, and hosted events such as the John Lennon Educational Bus, and the visit of the Young Naperville Singers from Naperville, Illinois.
The event on December 12th will also showcase performances from participants of various partnerships and programmes of Music Generation Clare.
Music Generation is co-funded by U2, The Ireland Funds, The Department of Education and Skills and Local Music Education Partnerships.
