The Galway Music Centre, which aims to be a collective voice for the future development of music in Galway, was officially opened on Monday.
The centre was launched by Galway West TD and classically trained soprano Hildegarde Naughton at the Mick Lally Theatre.
Based at St Mary’s College on St Mary’s Road in the city, the new centre is a collaborative project aimed at enhancing Galway’s facilities and services for music education and performance. Bringing together a diverse range of music organisations and interest groups, the Galway Music Centre seeks to ensure that co-ordinated and community-based supports for music are appropriately developed in Galway.
It currently has 15 member organisations including a wide range of Galway’s well known music schools, orchestral groups, performance organisations, residencies and choral groups. Support has also been forthcoming from Galway City and County Councils, NUI Galway and GMIT, as well as the Galway Education Centre and Galway/Roscommon Education and Training Board.
