Orchestral Ages

Music is one of life’s great joys for people of all ages. It’s been proven to have a positive impact on people’s mental health, reduces stress and can be accessed in many different ways from listening to music to playing in a band.  There is a hive of people of all ages getting involved in playing instruments, together in ensembles and participating in the Newpark Concert Orchestra, a community orchestra based in Newtown Music Centre.

‘Orchestral Ages’ is a new project that celebrates intergenerational music making and dlr Arts Office is looking for local youth ensembles to join forces with Newpark Concert Orchestra. Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council will be commissioning a new composition to be performed at this year’s Culture Night in dlr LexIcon. The project will take place over the summer months and the newly composed piece will be unveiled to the public on 21 September.

We are looking for young people that are used to playing in ensembles to join forces with Newpark Concert Orchestra, creating one giant intergenerational orchestra especially for Culture Night 2018!
