Join the young Musicale high jinks

Musicians with Music Generation Limerick City

MUSICALE is a new music festival playing out in venues across the Georgian Quarter between November 24 and December 3. It has to do with the Creative Ireland’s strategy  pillar dedicated to “enabling the creativity of every child”.

Musicale was instigated by Music Generation Limerick City in association with the Limerick School of Music. This festival has been developed in partnership with various stakeholders such as Croagh School of Music, Irish Chamber Orchestra, Musica Fusion and private teachers.

“A key element that makes the festival distinctive is that it is non-competitive. There will be no adjudicator, no grading, no marks, no winners and no losers,” reports Boris Hunka of MGLC. “Instead each concert will be hosted by a professional musician, who will at the end will give a short speech of appreciation, honing in on what made it special for them with each performance and their advice to each musician on their musical journey.”

Taking place in Culture House, the Coach House, LCGA, Belltable and Loft Venue.
