Music Generation Laois and Laois School of Music opened their new academic year on a high note with a very successful open evening held in the Portlaoise Youth Education Centre, Railway Street, Portlaoise on September 7.
A tremendous number of children and adults from far and wide were in attendance, sampling the various programmes available in both Music Generation Laois and Laois School of Music.
The opening evening gave both children and adults a chance to meet with tutors and try out the different range of instruments to get a taste of what both groups have to offer.
Both Music Generation Laois and Laois School of Music offer different groups for young musicians to join, including The School of Rock & Pop bands, Harp Ensemble, Saxophone quartet, The Trad Orchestra and Junior and Senior Youth Orchestras, which all work towards unique performance opportunities, both nationally and internationally.
An instrument hire service is also available.
