Monday 14th July to Friday 18th July – 10am to 3pm daily @ Irish World Academy of Music and Dance.

The Irish Chamber Orchestra and Music Generation Limerick City are joining forces once again in a collaborative event, in celebration of Limerick City of Culture. This summer sees the return of our annual Summer Camp Music Factory ‘Myths and Legends’. It will take place from Monday 14th to Friday 18th July, 10am – 3pm daily at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance.

In Music Factory Myths & Legends, we will explore tales from Limerick’s rich heritage of stories. From the Banshee to Brian Boru, stories from the past will come to life with the help of music, dance and theatre. Join ICO Community Engagement Manager Kathleen Turner, and violinist Diane Daly along with a host of talented tutors in music, song, dance, visual art, rap and musical theatre. Together with their leaders, children will create their very own musical piece to be performed for an audience of family and friends on the final day of camp (Friday 18th July). In a Music Factory first, campers will also have the chance to record their songs on the Music Generation Big Bus, which will be resident at the camp all week.

Music Factory is open to all children aged 8 – 12, and no previous musical experience is necessary. The aim of the camp is to make new friends, be creative and HAVE FUN!

The camp fee is 85 euro per child, and is payable to the Irish Chamber Orchestra by cash or cheque. Children should bring a packed lunch and bottled water each day.
