Led by cellist Gerald Peregrine, these concerts brought a welcome relief and the joy of live music to those isolated by the pandemic.
The project is supported by the Creative Ireland programme, with additional funding from Healthy Ireland, the National Lottery, The Ireland Funds and the Blackwater Valley Opera Festival.
To celebrate the work of frontline workers, the Mobile Music Machine with support from Creative Ireland, will host a special gala concert in the National Concert Hall on 15 June 2022. The concert will feature a 45-piece orchestra with conductor David Brophy and performances from many of the artists who worked with the Mobile Music Machine over the past two years.
These include Claudia Boyle, Emmet Cahill, Steve Cooney, Mary Coughlan, Jerry Fish, Red Hurley, Niamh Kavanagh, Séan Keane, Iarla Ó’Lionáird, Simon Morgan and more. Also performing will be the Frontline Workers choir and the Age Friendly Ireland intergenerational choir.
