PEACE PROMS AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
Peace Proms is a unique and ambitions musical education programme in which 7,000 children from 250 schools throughout Ireland participate annually. The project culminates in a series of concerts held at premier venues throughout Ireland in February/March.
Peace Proms is a 6-month choral education programme delivered by teachers in the classroom. The programme is most suitable for children aged 9 – 13 years.
Peace Proms involves:
• IN SCHOOL LEARNING: With their teachers, children learn 8 songs or medleys in different genres. All schools are provided with choir packs and rehearsal CDs in September. This information is also available on-line to participating schools.
• REGIONAL WORKSHOPS: Each school participates in ONE regional workshop which usually takes place in December/January during school hours and is given by renowned conductor Gearóid Grant and choreographer James Devine. In addition to vocal work, dance moves/actions are learned at these workshops and can also be learned from the CBOI website: www.cboi.ie
• PEACE PROMS CONCERT: Finally, all schools get the opportunity to perform with the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland in ONE concert which takes on Saturday or Sunday in February/March. In 2013 concerts will be held in Limerick, Cork, Galway, Kilkenny and Belfast.
Peace Proms entertains, educates and engages children and young people in music and enriches their lives through exceptional musical experiences and performances. Peace Proms helps young people to develop qualities of self-reliance, personal integrity, responsibility, and confidence by giving them the opportunity to
• Perform with a full symphony orchestra
• Work with leading professional conductors and musicians
• Perform in premier venues
• Develops vocal technique, presentation and performance in young people
• Introduces young people to a variety of musical styles and genres and develops an appreciation for these styles
Peace Proms is a musical and cultural celebration and provides a unique platform for young people to showcase their talent while promoting peace, unity and tolerance through music. Peace Proms makes the Arts more accessible to young people, their school, families and the wider community, and provides an opportunity for cooperation among children, parents, teachers, school boards, and the wider community.
Peace Proms is supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, and the Department of Education and Skills and is recognised as one of Ireland’s most important Arts Education initiatives, providing outstanding cultural opportunities for young people while promoting peace, unity and tolerance through music.
