RIAM Summer Sinfonia

Hi guys,

Previously I have spoken about how important it is to take part in an orchestra if it is available to you. Joining an orchestra not only benefits you in your performance ability with your instrument, but also it is a terrific and fun way to broaden your knowledge of music. I couldn’t recommend it more.

Today I came across an excellent course offered by the Royal Irish Academy of Music. Please see details below. I couldn’t recommend this highly enough. Check it out!!! 🙂


An exciting non-residential orchestral course led by conductor Ciaran Crilly, exploring orchestral repertoire and musician development, as well as working with IAYO conductors, and other fun activities:

  • Study the anatomy of the orchestra in a series of entertaining workshops
  • Work alongside student conductors from the IAYO Conducting Programme
  • Engage with RIAM tutors in specific instrumentation
  • Partake in recreational activities organised by our course managers
  • Perform in a joint concert with the RIAM Summer Wind Ensemble
