Evening Arts Appreciation Class with Musician Síle Daly

12 - 19 May 2021
Tickets: FREE

Join us for the first of two evening classes given by musician Síle Daly as part of a series during 2021.

In the first class, Síle will talk about her journey towards becoming a professional oboist – from her early musical experiences to where she is now and how as a musician she has diversified in her career.  She will talk about the magic of the oboe and the psychology of performance with its associated fears and rewards; what makes its sound so attractive, how the instrument evolved, and musical connections with other musicians. 

…so tune in to see how she will both inform and entertain you with her skills!

In the second class, entitled “Music and the Earth” Síle will talk about how some instruments have been created from stone and wood and how they have developed, such as the Alpine horn and shawms, and how music responds to the environment – the acoustics of caves leading to the design of buildings for the same effect.  It is amazing to realise that music is all around us and not just in a concert venue.

Suitable for all from 18 years upwards and for those wishing to learn more about music and how musicians work in an informal setting.

Sessions online.

These workshops will be presented on zoom, and a link will be sent to participants in advance of the workshops. All that is required is an internet connection!

These workshops are Free of Charge but places must be booked in advance.
