Established in 2017, Symphonic Waves, a regional youth orchestra based in the west of Ireland is a collaboration project between Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture and Music Generation Galway. The idea for the ensemble grew from an identified need to provide high level progression pathways and ensemble performance opportunities for advanced young musicians along the western seaboard. Symphonic Waves was conceived of by members of Galway Music Education Partnership (MEP) which included the directors of seven music schools and youth orchestras in Galway city and county in partnership with Galway County Council and Galway Roscommon Education and Training Board (GRETB) and Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture.
Symphonic Waves is co-produced and funded by Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture and managed by Music Generation Galway County.
