Sing Out with Strings, a project developed by the Irish Chamber Orchestra, works specifically with children living and attending schools in Limerick’s Regeneration Areas. Now in its fourth year, pupils from all three participating schools – Galvone National School, Southhill Junior School and St Mary’s Boys School are busy preparing for their next challenging public performance with the Irish Chamber Orchestra. This year’s theme Oceans, Adventures and New Worlds celebrates St. Brendan the Navigator, our infamous voyager. The children have been busy composing sea shanties and ballads. This concert features some of these compositions as well as orchestra works from Pirates of the Caribbean and The Brendan Voyage. Pupils are particularly excited that the performance takes place at the Lime Tree Theatre, South Circular Road, Limerick.

Join us  for this nautical adventure, when 290 children aged 4-12 will take to the stage with the Irish Chamber Orchestra for a very special concert. Together with their staff, they will perform music and songs they have composed together with the Irish Chamber Orchestra for an audience of friends and family.

Sing Out  with Strings  is funded by Limerick Regeneration, the JP McManus Foundation, Limerick Enterprise Development Partnership (LEDP) with additional support from the Ireland Funds, The Healy Group and supported by other private sponsors. The pilot project was initially funded by Strategic Innovation in Education (University of Limerick, Department of Lifelong Learning and Shannon Consortium). Sing Out with Strings works in partnership with local Limerick businesses. Musical instruments are purchased at Savins Music Store and books are purchased at O’Mahony’s Bookshop
