Music Generation Galway City

Ireland

Sun 22 Oct

You're invited on an interactive musical journey through nature with song and poetry. From the smallest piccolo to the largest tuba - a spectrum of orchestral sound tells a story of Galway’s wildlife, green spaces and seascapes. Listen to the fluttering butterflies, buzzing bees and the caw of the crow, alongside other characters from the natural world around us.

The University of Galway Concert Orchestra and Music Generation Galway City join forces to present this fun, family-friendly, interactive cushion concert for the whole family.
