Staff and students from the BA (Hons) Music programme will present three workshops on different aspects of the Leaving Certificate Music syllabus. The first deals with fusion in Irish traditional music with a live ensemble to illustrate the points. The second focuses on the music of The Beatles with performances by the WIT jazz ensemble and the WIT Chamber Choir. The third is an exploration of Raymond Deane's "Seachanges" where motifs from the work will be explored and developed through creative improvisations.
This will be followed by a presentation on careers in music and what to expect if you come to WIT to study for a BA (Hons) Music. To finish the event, you are invited to join with the choir for a mash-up of "Let it Be" and Pachelbel's Canon.
On behalf of the School of Humanities we value the opportunity to meet with second level students and to introduce them to the Department of Creative and Performing Arts, and the BA (Hons) in Music students and staff.
The event is open to Leaving Cert Music students and is free of charge. However, booking is essential. Please book at [email protected].
Students should aim to arrive at 9.30am to get seated in time.
