This year’s selection of melodies and dances covers a wide range of music, from the classical ballet of Tchaikovsky to the current hit Cheerleader, with famous anthems from Handel’s Zadok the Priest to Les Misérables and West Side Story. Dance music producer, DJ Dashka will join forces with vocalist Keith Hanley for some contemporary surprises.

The programme is curriculum-based and makes connections between music of the past and present. The concert focuses on active and attentive listening, encourages audience participation and is a multi-media experience. Classroom resources are provided to schools participating in A Celebration by Evelyn Grant.

Experiencing live music through active listening makes an impact on a child that lasts a lifetime. Evelyn Grant’s unique skill in communicating the joy of music past and present is at the heart of the success of Cork Pops Orchestra concerts.

This is an event for all the family that is not to be missed!
