American Chamber Orchestra Looking for Irish Collaborators

I Giovani Solisti Chamber Orchestra, an American high school chamber orchestra, conducted by Emmett Drake, will visit Ireland and Northern Ireland in April 2024 and they will perform in Galway, Dublin and Derry. They are seeking a similar aged ensemble that can perform with them in Galway and /or Dublin, provisionally in St Nicholas’ Church and in Dublin in Christ Church Cathedral. They are also looking for an Irish conductor who could provide a workshop in Irish music.

Founded in 1983, I Giovani Solisti is a chamber orchestra made up of the most advanced high school string players from Hall and Conard High Schools in West Hartford, Connecticut. The group meets to rehearse and perform a diverse selection from the string orchestra repertoire, ranging from Henry Purcell to Eric Ewazen.

Please contact Monica Pellegatti Thomas, Project Manager, at Kuoni Tumlare at for more details and if you are interested in collaborating with the orchestra.
