In 2021, Ortús musicians will continue to bring their music into the community during the festival in collaboration with Cork ETB School of Music, MTU Cork School of Music and Cork County Council (subject to restrictions). Current plans include workshops in primary and secondary schools across Cork City and County, outreach concerts in libraries and public spaces, masterclasses, pop-up concerts and open rehearsals. Two young ensembles, featuring students from Cork’s ETB and MTU Schools of Music, will receive mentoring from Ortús musicians in the weeks coming up to the festival. The Wispa Quartet and the Siciliana Quartet will also be performing during the festival.
Further details of Ortús 2021 Outreach coming soon.
