Music Generation Kilkenny in Collaboration with Kilkenny Civic Trust
Music Generation Kilkenny in partnership with Kilkenny Civic Trust would like to invite you to ‘Sounds of Summer’ at Butler House & Garden on Saturday 10th June and Saturday the 17th of June. Both performances commence at 11.30am in the stunning surroundings of Butler House Garden adjacent to the magnificent Kilkenny Castle. Following the success of last years ‘Sounds of Summer’, the series provides a platform for young, emerging talent to perform after a year of tuition with Music Generation Kilkenny’s Musician Educators.
On the 10th of June the wonderfully talented young musicians from the ‘Creative Music Space’ will perform a selection of songs. Since September last year, the young musicians have engaged in small group tuition learning guitar, drums, and vocals. Having performed rock and pop tunes on the bandstand last Christmas, ‘Sounds of Summer’ will be the young musicians’ end of term performance and they are very much looking forward to showcasing their talents in front of a live audience.
Sounds of Summer is a series of two concerts with the second taking place on Saturday the 17th of June featuring a performance from four Kilkenny Schools who take part in the Music Generation Kilkenny Primary School String Programme. Up to 100 children will bring the beautiful sounds of the violin to Butler House Garden at 11:30 am.
Entry to both performances is free.
Sinéad Blanchfield (Development Officer, Music Generation Kilkenny) said, “It’s great to be back in Butler House Garden for another ‘Sounds of Summer’ concert series. It was a great success last year and I’m delighted to partner again with Kilkenny Civic Trust for this wonderful initiative for the young musicians in our programmes. Opportunities for them to perform in public are very important for their growth, development, and confidence as young musicians. I invite Kilkenny music lovers to come and support these emerging young musicians”.
Speaking about the event, Ciarán Conroy (CEO Kilkenny Civic Trust) said, “We are delighted to welcome Music Generation Kilkenny and the wonderfully talented young musicians to Butler House & Garden this summer. The commitment of the young musicians was a joy to behold last summer so all those who attend this year are in for a treat. It’s a wonderful opportunity to experience the next generation of talented Kilkenny musicians showcase their superb musical abilities in the beautiful setting of Butler House Garden.”
