22ND COMPOSERS IN THE CLASSROOM PERFORMANCE Friday 3rd May, 10am

Vertigo, Cork County Hall Admission: Free of charge The Composers in the Classroom scheme is an initiative which brings professional composers and musicians, quite literally, into the classroom as part of a special curriculum devised for transition year music students and their teachers. Initiated in 1998 by Cork International Choral Festival and the Arts Officers of Cork City and Cork County Councils, the scheme offers music students and their teachers the opportunity to work with professional composers throughout the school year. The scheme has been highly successful in encouraging and assisting students, many with little or no musical training, in their musical creativity and experimentation.
