Tickle your ribs at this screening of classic masterpieces of the silent era accompanied by the Irish Chamber Orchestra Youth Orchestra.
The ICO Youth Orchestra emerged from direct funding from the Creative Ireland Programme, part of the National Creativity Fund.
This string orchestra experience is free for children aged 0-18 years. It focuses on orchestral participation and performance, as well as small chamber music groups with individual lessons boosting confidence and skills. It utilises pop, trad, classical and world music styles and allows participants to engage with different string instruments. It explores improvisation, composition and conducting in a safe and creative space.
The orchestra convenes on a weekly basis, supplemented by three mid-term camps throughout the year, allowing students to work intensively during holiday periods. This enables them to perform and grow as musicians while at the same time, broaden access to arts and culture within local communities.
Enjoy two classic short films ‘The Scarecrow’ and ‘The Goat’ by Buster Keaton with the Irish Chamber Orchestra Youth Orchestra.
