Consultant team Bane/Mullarkey have been engaging widely with music and dance organisations, public representatives, third level institutions, arts organisations in Galway, Ireland and beyond and are about to present the Feasibility Study for a dedicated music/dance venue in Galway. This was commissioned by Music for Galway in partnership with Galway Dance Project with funds from the Arts Council.


As part of their performance in Galway, percussionist Alex Petcu and Marion Cronin will engage with children studying music at secondary school level in a programme of exchange, whereby participants will
present their own work to the two artists and receive feedback on it, before seeing the new work created by the duo.

As part of our Midwinter Festival, we will be sending out a call to all who would like to join in the performance of the ethereal Fauré Requiem. Mark Duley, conductor extraordinaire, is gathering another group of St. Nicholas Singers who will work over a short and intense period to bring this beautiful work to the stage on Saturday 20th January 2024.
