Julianstown Youth Orchestra & Jennifer Murphy Play the Barbican

Old Drogheda Society

The JYO are performing in the Barbican Centre, Drogheda on Saturday 03 May at 5pm as part of the Drogheda Arts Festival.

The JYO will be joined on the day by guest soloist, Jennifer Murphy. Jennifer is a rising young violinist currently a scholarship student at the Royal Academy of Music in London and the JYO are delighted that she is travelling from London to take part in the concert.

Formed in 2011 the Julianstown Youth Orchestra includes players from Louth, Meath and Dublin and has fast become one of the biggest youth orchestras in Ireland with over 100 members playing a wide range of instruments.

Led by leading conductor, Fergus Sheil and run by a committed team of parents, this progressive orchestra has had the wonderful opportunity of working with composer Brian Irvine, received mentorship from the RTE Symphony and Concert Orchestras and performed with international violinist Tasmin Little. They have performed in the National Concert Hall and the Convention Centre Dublin and won an award at the IAYO Festival in 2013

Tickets to the concert cost 10 euro for adults and children are free. They can be purchased at the door.
