The Human Orchestra Project
Prepare to be part of something transcendent!! The Human Orchestra Project was initiated by Clonakilty-based composer and violinist Justin Grounds in 2013. It gathers groups of humans of all ages together in specific places, times and occasions to perform music using their voices and instruments brought along. The music they make is unlike any music you have heard before. If you come to this concert, you will become a member of The Human Orchestra Project, and will be an integral part of the performance. All are welcome and encouraged to participate in this show. No musical instruments or musical experience is necessary. This is fun for all ages and participation, though encouraged, is not necessary.
