RTÉ lyric fm launches Outreach 2016

RTÉ lyric fm is offering a new stream of outreach activity this year, and is looking for locations in Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford and Waterford.

The station is looking for locations in those areas to host RTÉ lyric fm Quartet and the Music for all Ages programme.

It offers live music performances, taking place in educational and community settings around the country. The concept behind this project is Life-long learning: listen, engage, enjoy.

The concerts are presented by the RTÉ lyric fm Quartet led by presenter Evelyn Grant (flute/piano), with Mary McCague (violin/piano), Jean Kelly (concert harp/electric harp) and Gerry Kelly (‘cello).

The quartet performed ten concerts in the Sligo/Leitrim and Roscommon/Westmeath areas in November 2015 as part of the RTÉ lyric fm education and outreach programme. These concerts took place in primary and post primary schools, care homes, libraries and third level institutions, with programmes tailored to the individual settings.

A similar 2016 spring programme is offered in two specific regions from April 18th to 22nd in Carlow/Kilkenny and Wexford/Waterford and booking is now open on a first come first served basis.

This programme is provided free of charge as part of RTÉ’s public service commitment. For more details, visit this site and click on education.
