Online Performances

The Cork Pops Orchestra, conducted by broadcaster and educator, Evelyn Grant, has been performing concerts for schools for almost thirty years. For the 2021-22 season, we are offering a series of online performances, supporting the listening and responding strand of the curriculum. We look forward to welcoming you back to live performances in November 2022.
Thank you for your continued support of the orchestra. Please make a donation towards the cost of creating these resources and support the continued development of our schools programme.
