The Arts Department of Wexford County Council are delighted to announce that County Wexford will receive €600,000 over three years to enable access to subsidised vocal and instrumental tuition for children and young people throughout the county.
The 9 new Music Education Partnerships selected for participation in Music Generation ‘Phase 2’ will be established on a phased basis over the next five years. Planning for the Wexford set-up process will commence over the coming months, with programming expected to get underway later in 2018.
Wexford Music Education Partnership’s (MEP) goal is to develop a range of affordable and accessible performance music programmes for children and young people age 0 to 18. This will include the coordination of music tuition services within the county, working in partnership with schools, community music groups and tuition centres in the formation of choirs, ensembles, access programmes, composition and songwriting projects, and more, across a range of musical genres and styles.
WWETB will partner with Wexford County Council on the successful delivery of the Music Generation in Wexford.
