Informal Music Afternoon Sunday May 1st 2016
in The Model, The Mall, Sligo at 1pm admission €5 children go free
Guest artists from Sligo International Chamber Music Festival, The Vogler String Quartet,
Aoife Ni Briain , Calmin Gilmore and the Mesefe String Quartet will form part of the line-up for this special Informal Music Afternoon, along with Felip Carbonell and Sligo Baroque Orchestra.
It is an essential characteristic of Sligo's monthly IMAs that there is always an eclectic mix of music from different genres; and that all who attend will discover music and musicians that are new for them. IMAs are very informal, very relaxed, but are also very stimulating. And they importantly provide a platform for young, emerging performers.
A centre piece of the programme will be a performance of Grieg's string quartet op 27 by the Mesefe Quartet who have been part of the Strings Attached project with the Vogler Quartet at the Royal Irish Academy of Music.
The Vogler Quartet will play two airs by John Buckley; and a violin sonata by Ysaye, a concerto grosso by Heinichen, and music by Caimin Gilmore and Felip Carbonell will make up Sunday's varied fare.
IMA's take place in the Atrium in the Model, beautifully light for a midday event with an equally bright acoustic.
The Gallery Café offer a tempting range of food and drink, children are always welcome (with free admittance), and the set-up is in relaxed cabaret style.
We hope to see you there,
