Macnas are seeking young musicians aged 15 – 19 to join the internationally-acclaimed Macnas drumming troupe.
An open audition workshop will be held on Sat 24th of February from 12pm – 2pm at the Macnas workshop in Fisheries Field, on the grounds of NUI Galway with 15 places available. The auditions workshop will be led by drummer Éimhín Cradock and Macnas musical director Orlagh de Bhaldraithe.
All attending the workshop are asked to bring one drum that bests suits their style of play e.g. snare, tom, floor tom.
Those successful in the auditions will be invited to attend weekly rehearsals with a view to performing with Macnas during the annual Hallowe’en parade in Galway, as well as joining the company for performances across Ireland and the world.
The troupe will meet weekly at 8pm on Tuesdays at Macnas during term time and a full commitment is required from those joining.
