The Irish Chamber Orchestra & The Irish World Academy SANCTUARY project present WORLD CARNIVAL.

WORLD CARNIVAL, features one hundred and twenty children from seventeen nationalities in one school celebrating diversity and culture through music.











The Irish Chamber Orchestra and The Irish World Academy, University of Limerick have facilitated a musical programme in Presentation Primary School for a second year and since last October have hosted weekly workshops in world song for children in the 4 – 8 year old category. In this unique performance, the children will perform songs together from as far afield as South Africa, North America, Mexico and Poland as well as some Irish favourites, accompanied by members of the Irish Chamber Orchestra and the Irish World Academy.

* Sanctuary is a cultural initiative from the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, UL which celebrates the musical traditions of refugees and asylum seekers in Ireland, while also recognising the importance of music in cultural integration. The project has also been supported by PAUL Partnership and Limerick City Arts Office

The Irish Chamber Orchestra is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland.
