MusicTown is a new music festival in Dublin produced by Dublin City Council consisting of an eclectic programme representing many different genres, and taking place in many spaces and buildings all across the city.
CMC participated in the inaugural festival in 2015 with a boutique festival for children entitled OurTunes – A weekend in eight colours. Designed for 5–10 year olds, OurTunes was curated by cellist Adrian Mantu, Galway Ensemble-in-Residence, RTE ConTempo Quartet, and featured a number of 15 minute performances of new music taking place in different locations in and around the CMC’s premises at 19 Fishamble Street.
Children were invited to watch out for the Pink Lady, Dark Sounds, Blue Brothers, Golden Sax, Green Shades, Grey Clouds, Royal Fanfare and Red Ribbons! Complete with specially designed worksheets and refreshments the weekend was hugely popular and the project will be an integral part of MusicTown 2016.
