Music for Galway spreading its wings with new strategy Music for Galway spreading its wings with new strategy

From Galway to the World is the title of Music for Galway’s strategy for the next three years as the organisation continues to extend its reach while providing access to top-quality classical and contemporary music here in Galway.

The initiative was launched this Wednesday in the city’s PorterShed a Dó.

“The title of the strategy conveys perfectly the main message of the organisation,” said Music for Galway’s CEO Anna Lardi. “In recent years, there has been a major transformation as the organisation has grown in capacity, ambition and output.”

While continuing to look after its home base, Music for Galway (MfG) is increasingly working with national and international partners on initiatives to attract audiences from further afield, she added.

Its eight-day cello festival, CELLISSIMO, with the next one scheduled for May of 2024 is one such vehicle. CELLISSIMO will include Songs of Travel, a major project for which MfG is leading a team of five participating countries. The Songs for Travel initiative has been awarded  €1 million through the Creative Europe Cooperation Award.

At this week’s launch of From Galway to the World, MfG’s  Artistic Director Finghin Collins announced details of a special concert connected to the CELLISSIMO festival, which is due to take place on November 18 in the city’s Galmont Hotel. Featuring major cello-piano duo Sheku and Isata Kanneh-Mason, it will give audiences a taste of what to expect in May 2024. Tickets are now on sale for that show.
