Family Concert: Peter and the Wolf with the Westland Wind Quintet.
Expect to be enthralled by the timeless story of Peter and his dealings with the crafty Wolf, by Sergej Prokofiev with the Westland Wind Quintet. Delve into all-time classics for everyone to enjoy, and learn the story of the wind quintet through the music of Jacques Ibert. Designed for ages 6-12, lots of participation is promised to keep the whole family entertained!
The Westland Wind Quintet was formed in 2012 as a student ensemble of the Royal Irish Academy of Music. In 2014 they were prizewinners in the ESB Feis Ceoil Chamber Music Cup as well as participating in the young ensemble residency at the Great Music in Irish Houses Festival. In addition to working in a wind quintet setting they often play in wind sections of orchestras together, performing in a wide range of styles – from early baroque to experimental contemporary music – with different ensembles across Ireland and abroad. And, above all, they really enjoy spending time together!
