Music Generation Louth has established a very successful string orchestra programme for children and young people that has expanded to cater for three levels of young string players – Senior Strings, Junior Strings and First Strings.
Our three orchestra groups, (Senior, Junior and First Strings) rehearse weekly during term time at the Music Department of the Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT). A range of public performances take place throughout the year. The programme provides members with high quality training as orchestral string players and is a fantastic way for young players to meet other musicians their own age, develop their musical skills, and learn to play as part of a larger group.
First Strings rehearsals get underway this term on Saturday 9 September 11.45 to 12.45pm.
11:45am – 12:45pm First Strings
HOW TO JOIN
We would be delighted to hear from children who would like to join our string orchestra programme. No audition is necessary. Membership to First Strings is open to anyone that has been attending lessons on violin, viola, cello or double bass for a year or more. Annual Membership is €100 (€50 per term payable in advance).
