Informal Music Afternoon
First Sunday of Month
03 Jun, 01 Jul, 05 Aug, 1-3pm.
For the summer months, The Model is embarking on a new musical venture called Informal Music Afternoon. This will be a monthly event-taking place in the performance space on the first Sunday in June, July and August from 1pm-3pm.
The Informal Music Afternoon offers an opportunity for all to sit back and relax on a Sunday afternoon and listen to exceptional chamber music that incorporates a mixture of different musical periods and genres. These music events will differ from rigidly structured events synonymous with classical music. The atmosphere is intended to be casual, making this new venture ideal for introducing children (and others) to a rich variety of different types of music in a comfortable setting.
Set in cabaret style surroundings it leaves out what can be perceived as off-putting rigid concert conventions. Audience members are free to come and go during the performance and children go free! Promoted by a group of Sligo musicians with a passionate commitment to live music performance in partnership with The Model these events are supported by Con Brio and Sligo Baroque Orchestra.
The first Informal Music Afternoon on Sunday 03 June, will include performers: Nicola Cleary, violin, who has international experience as a soloist and chamber musician as well as having played with orchestras; Frances Bell, viola, a founder member of Sligo Baroque Orchestra, a regular performer in string quartets; Anna Houston, cello, is as at home playing a Beethoven trio or Baroque cello sonata as she is performing with No Crows ;
Felip Carbonell, guitar moved from Mallorca to become a major figure in Sligo’s musical scene, performing in a number of jazz, Latin and other ensembles, Darragh Houston, piano – young talented jazz pianist; Rod Alston, harpsichord, instigator of many musical events in Sligo over the last twenty odd years with a programme that includes a Beethoven trio,a Corelli violin sonata a cello sonata by, G. Sammartini, a duo by Paganini for violin and guitar some Jazz and pieces that defy categorisation
