Music Generation Alumni, Cork City
#Wherearetheynow? Music Generation alumni campaign continues and this month we are going to Music Generation Cork City to hear from the talented brass player Amy O'Callaghan and her #Musicgenerationjourney.
Now a third year Irish and Music student at University College Cork, Amy has experienced the Music Generation Cork City brass programme from a beginner student to apprentice tutor, to now being a vital part of their strategic planning panel, mapping out the direction of programming over the next five years. Amy's story is certainly one to be celebrated. We hope you enjoy it!
