Irvine and Kilbirnie Library will welcome free orchestral performances this Make Music Day

Posted on 17 Jun 2024

North Ayrshire Libraries will welcome the North Ayrshire Chamber Orchestra and Garnock Wind Ensemble this Friday, June 21, to celebrate global Make Music Day. 

A chance to celebrate the connective power of music, pupils from across our secondary schools will visit both Irvine and Kilbirnie Libraries to deliver an exciting musical showcase.

Featuring several renditions, the aim of the performances is to help connect communities with music and culture.

The drop-in performances will be free for audience members, beginning at Irvine Library (NA Chamber Orchestra) from 11am until 11:30am then onward to Kilbirnie Library (Garnock Wind Ensemble) from 2pm until 2:30pm.

Rhonda Leith, Head of Service for Connected Communities said: “We are excited to offer the upcoming performances from some of our area’s most talented musicians this Friday to celebrate global Make Music Day.

“Not only is this a great opportunity to see first hand how our young musicians are progressing with the expertise of the dedicated Instrumental Instructors over at North Ayrshire Music Service, it is also a chance for local people to experience two of our libraries in a new and exciting way.

“So, if you're in need of some relaxation, come along to take a breather and experience the calming classical sounds of some of our most talented musicians.

“You can also use the opportunity to speak to our friendly library staff to learn more about other events, groups and services available at your local library.”
