Informal Music Afternoon

January 5, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

IMAs are Sligo’s monthly live music event that have classical music at their core, but are always varied and always you can expect to hear something that is quite new for you. The Model cafe in operating, the set-up is cabaret-style, the atmosphere is informal and really engaged. Children go free.

IMAs are produced by the Sligo Baroque Orchestra in partnership with The Model. We gratefully acknowledge support from the Arts Council and Sligo County Council.

***Programme announced for January**

THE FIRST informal Music Afternoon in 2020 takes place next Sunday, 5th January in The Model with a programme of the familiar and unfamiliar from areas of the Baroque and of jazz that we believe will provide a great musical start to the New Year.

Members of the recently formed quartet that performs in a range of styles, but with a jazzy thread connecting it: lots of standards a la Ella, Billie, and Chet Baker, some jazzified folk and some jazzified country, some originals.

These Foolish Things

Siobhan O’Farrell – vocals
Larry Gallagher – Guitar and vocals
Martin Moser – trumpet
Con Schmaucks – drums and percussion

Members of Sligo Baroque Orchestra will perform a sonata for oboe, violins, viola and continuo by Johann Melchior Molter, a dazzling sinfonia by Johann Gottlieb Janitsch and a virtuosic trio sonata by Antonio Vivaldi.

John Flanagan – oboe

Nicola Cleary – violin

Brigid McCafferty – violin

Cillian Houston – viola

Anna Houston – cello

Rod Alston – harpsichord

IMAs are notably enjoyed by performers and audience alike. The have a notably relaxed atmosphere, a cabaret style set-up with the Model Café offering a range of tempting snacks and drinks; and always a very variedbprogramme of live music-making. The bright, airy ambience of the atrium is matched by a similar acoustic – perfect for a memorable Sunday lunchtime.

Informal Music Afternoons are produced by Sligo Baroque Orchestra in partnership with the Model and with financial support from The Arts Council and Sligo County Council

Admission just €5 and children go free

We hope to see you there!
