The St Agnes Orchestra, or the St Agnes’ School Violin & Orchestra Project is a full orchestra…with a difference. It’s for everyone, regardless of means or opportunity. It’s based in St Agnes Primary School Crumlin, in Dublin. All pupils learn to play a stringed instrument and classes take place during the normal school day, so parents don’t have to take children to out-of-school lessons; there is no charge for use of instruments and tuition is free, making the music truly available to all. I was lucky enough to bump into someone in Kinvara last Saturday – American Independence Day – who told me the orchestra were coming to Kinvara, a few miles down the road from my home in Galway, and I went along with my friend Ailve to hear them play.
