RTÉ lyric fm launches Outreach 2016


Callout for locations in Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford and Waterford to host RTÉ lyric fm Quartet


RTÉ lyric fm is delighted to offer a new stream of outreach activity this year. Music for all Ages is an engaging and entertaining RTÉ lyric fm outreach programme of live music performances, taking place in educational and community settings around the country. The concept behind this project is Life-long learning: listen, engage, enjoy.


The concerts are presented by the RTÉ lyric fm Quartet led by presenter Evelyn Grant (flute/piano), with Mary McCague (violin/piano), Jean Kelly (concert harp/electric harp) and Gerry Kelly (‘cello).


The quartet performed ten concerts in the Sligo/Leitrim and Roscommon/Westmeath areas in November 2015 as part of the  RTÉ lyric fm education and outreach programme. These concerts took place in primary and post primary schools, care homes, libraries and third level institutions, with programmes tailored to the individual settings.
A similar 2016 spring programme is offered in two specific regions from April 18th to 22nd in Carlow/Kilkenny and Wexford/Waterford and booking is now open on a first come first served basis.


This programme is provided free of charge as part of RTÉ’s public service commitment. If you would like the RTÉ lyric fm Quartet to visit your institution, completed applications should be submitted by March 11th, 2016. Visit www.rte.ie/lyric and click on education.
