Sun. 8 May 1pm
Admission €8 (children admitted free)

Please note the change of date for the May IMA.

The May IMA is a collaborative performance involving Sligo-based folk orchestra, NoCrows and Sligo Baroque Orchestra. The collaboration includes music composed by members of NoCrows, arranged by Anna Houston for Sligo Baroque Orchestra and NoCrows.

The program will also include a Vivaldi Cello Concerto played by three Sligo Academy of Music students: Eanna Duffy, Conor Flynn and James O’Donnell.

NoCrows is a dynamic folk orchestra from the multicultural melting pot of Sligo’s music scene. Formed in 2005, NoCrows’ growing output of original material reflects its diverse musical roots, from Irish traditional to Latin rumba, classical, jazz, rock and Balkan music. Audiences have been astonished by the unequalled width of the band’s original repertoire, from delicate Irish airs to Russian Gypsy mayhem, from Catalan Jota to original songs in many styles with lush string arrangements. The musical mix reflects the folk traditions of the various members but also a lifetime of experience of the various players involved across many genres of music.
