This year’s programme features the instrument that is Ireland’s national emblem – The Harp. Music for concert harp provides a context for social and cultural history of the 18th and 19th century, while the electric harp brings us right in to the 21st century, accompanying songs and dance tracks from recent pop music hits.

Dance music producer DJ Dashka and vocalist Keith Hanley will join forces with our soloist, Jean Kelly, on electric harp. Plenty of audience participation is always encouraged and song lyrics and images will be projected on the screen.

http://www.corkpops.ie/ The programme, as usual, is curriculum-based, and makes connections between music of the past and present. The concert focuses on active and attentive listening, encourages audience participation, and is a multi-media experience. Classroom resources are provided to participating schools.
