More than 40 musicians will be on stage performing a variety of genres for free, with voluntary audience donations going to Focus Ireland

The Department of Creative and Performing Arts BA (Honours) Music will celebrate its annual Christmas concert on Thursday, 30 November 2017 in the College Street Chapel at 7 pm.

The programme will range from the classic Muddy Water’s ‘I just wanna make love to you’ to the choral ‘Ode to Ophelia’, written by WIT composer Marian Ingoldsby in response to the recent storm.

People of Waterford are invited to come along and listen to a night of music and song from the most promising musicians in the region. Entrance is free and donations will be taken in aid of Focus Ireland.

The BA (Hons) Music programme was first ratified in 1987, so this year marks the beginning of the 30th academic year of music at WIT. This is one of a number of events run throughout the year to celebrate 30 years of composers, performers, musicologists, and music technologists who began their journey at WIT.

Undergraduate students on the music degree will showcase their talent, performing a wide-ranging programme from traditional and jazz standards, to contemporary compositions and recognisable songs and melodies. There will be performances from the traditional, guitar and jazz ensembles and the chamber choir.

The concert is organised, promoted and performed by the BA (Honours) Music students.

"The concert is a must for anyone considering studying music at third level. It is a family friendly event, with an early start and great variety in the music played. The concert presents a wonderful opportunity to listen to the fruits of students’ hard work over weeks of rehearsals,” said Dr Hazel Farrell, Programme Leader on the BA (Hons) Music.
