What do you get when you combine ConTempo Quartet with Jazz musicians? JazzTempo! To close the summer, Galway Music Residency brings you a special Live Streamed event on Friday 28th August at 1pm.
This event will be the culmination of an intensive socially distanced residency shared by ConTempo Quartet and four Galway city and county based Jazz musicians: Matthew Berrill (clarinet/sax), Aengus Hackett (guitar), Roisín Mulliez (voice) and Barry Donohue (Double bass). During this time of experimentation, the musicians will challenge one another and learn from each other's experiences in their respective music genres. Based on new compositions by Matthew Berrill and a number of Jazz standards, the musicians will develop a new work of music for performance, taking inspiration from both the 'Jazz' and 'Classical' idioms.
The 40-minute performance, which will take place in the beautiful surrounds of the Oughterard Courthouse in County Galway, can be watched live on Facebook (@thegalwaymusicresidency) free of charge, with donations most welcome.
