Calling Music Lovers in the Midlands
Published: 22nd January 2013
The co-curators of the new Cafe Music Nights Project, are delighted to announce the launch of the Cafe Music Nights 2013 – a series of five concert events to take place on various Thursday evenings in the Tullamore Rugby Club; Tullamore, Co. Offaly at 8:00 pm
Through the generous support of the Arts Council of Ireland, Cafe Music Nights will present a series of five concert events offering MUSIC LOVERS in the MIDLANDS an opportunity to experience a wide range of musical repertoire expressed through the artistry of a 20-strong panel of distinguished artist-performers. With a collection of upwards of ten artists per concert, each uniquely designed programme will offer a chance to hear musical collaborations of all sorts such as the hearty and well-establish finery of the string quartet, exotic and sensual expressiveness of guitar, voice and accordion, intimate delicacy of solo soprano recorder and the earthy raw power of large ensemble partnerships!
The Cafe Music Nights Project will also support the creation of new works of musical art as well as provide a platform for repeat performances of previously commissioned works. These elements will reside comfortably alongside a richly endowed listing of 'greats' from the classical music repertoire. Adding spice to the classical bulk, Cafe Music Nights invites you to come and enjoy a little bit of the musically unexpected too - don't shy away from the electrifying performances of work which herald from the realms of jazz and world music!
The Cafe Music Nights Project has been created in response to the overwhelming public demand expressed following the success of our first Cafe Music Night in August 2012 where a sellout crowd of 120 were treated to performances by the ConTempo String Quartet and Friends in a diverse and colourful programme of music designed to spark the interest and curiosity of a whole new audience. The Arts Council has offered us, as a community, a chance to build on this enthusiasm.
If you are a MUSIC LOVER and you would like to see this project grow into the future, please offer your support...
• By attending the concerts and enjoying the music...
• By spreading the word to your friends, colleagues and family, and...
• By letting us know what you think about the events as they unfold.
