Kylemore College Harp Ensemble - The 27th Edinburgh International Harp Festival 2008
Kylemore Harp Ensemble comprises many of Anne-Marie O'Farrell's harp students of various levels. Their repertoire includes well known Irish airs, dance tunes and the music of Carolan together with music from the classical tradition, e.g., Bach, Vivaldi, Boccherini, Eric Satie and compositions/arrangements by their director Anne-Marie O'Farrell. They perform in a variety of settings from care homes to concert halls, including charity fundraising events, corporate entertainment and harp festivals. A particularly memorable occasion was their performance at the Edinburgh International Harp Festival 2008 where they joined with ensembles from Brittany and Scotland to play in a group comprising over 60 players under the direction of Scottish harpist Isobel Mieras. The generous support of the CDVEC, the Kylemore Parents' Association and the EBS was much appreciated in making this trip possible. The ensemble members experienced a week of tuition from the world's best players and teachers in a wide range of musical styles.
