Irish Youth Baroque Orchestra Concerts 2022
Ireland’s finest young musicians have been selected to play in this year’s Irish Youth Baroque Orchestra where those with a penchant for historically informed performance can hone their talents under the guidance of artistic director Claire Duff and musicians from the Irish Baroque Orchestra. Culminating in concerts in Townley Hall, Louth at 7:30pm on Friday, 22 July and St Ann’s Church, Dawson Street at 5:00pm on Saturday, 23 July.
This year’s programme ‘Dublin Gaieties’ will explore the importance of dance and Baroque music in Dublin in the 18th century. Dance formed an intrinsic part of social life and entertainment at court but was also used for achieving and maintaining social status. The programme will include Handel, Dubourg, Cousser and Vivaldi. Performing on baroque instruments, IYBO will bring music which brought dancers to their feet in our capital centuries ago, freshly to life. A collaboration between the Irish Baroque Orchestra and the Irish Association of Youth Orchestras.
Tickets to the St Ann’s Church, Dawson Street on Saturday, 23 July will be available at the door.
General admission is €15 with €10 concessions.
