On 2nd June from early morning to late evening students and staff will play various genres of music continuously for twelve hours during which time they will attempt to raise much-needed funds for the Irish Red Cross and their Ukraine Crisis Appeal. You will hear everything from classical music to traditional music and everything in between. From 4.30 pm they will welcome members of the public as walk-ins to wander around the various performance spaces and soak up the atmosphere.
Carol Daly, Principal of the Cork ETB School of Music, stated “through this musical offering, we want to bring not just practical support for Ukraine, but to communicate some joy by doing what the students and staff do best. So, make sure you call to see us from 4.30 pm on 2nd June to experience the amazing talents that this School of Music has to offer”.
As we see the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time unfold before our very eyes we feel as helpless as the rest of the world does. As musicians, both teachers and students alike, we feel that the greatest contribution we can make is through our art and our time. There is strength and unity in music. It is a universal language that transcends politics and violence. “Music expresses what cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent” – Victor Hugo.
