Music Matters at The Ark

IMRO's Music Matters team recently dropped into The Ark to find out more about our music projects for young people.

Music Matters recently dropped into The Ark to have a chat with our Music Programmer, Aisling O’Gorman. As Music Programmer, Aisling oversees the many music events and projects that The Ark incorporates into its programme throughout the year. Aisling explains how The Ark manages to keep its music projects fresh and appealing for all ages, and shares her thoughts on the value that music brings to young people.

Earlier this year, The Ark’s programme of workshops and performances Lights, Camera, Music!, gave children of all ages the opportunity to explore the use of music with film and make music of their own. Music Matters also spoke to some of the different composers and musicians involved in the project, as they shared their thoughts on why they think music is so important.

Music Matters is IMRO's campaign that aims to unite the entire music community and get people thinking about the significance of the music they listen to and how it affects each and every one of us.
