Summer Intermediate Ensemble

The Center for Irish Music 836 Prior Avenue North, Ste. 400, St. Paul

*In-Person Class*

Directed by Brian Miller with support from Carmen Pasquerella, the Summer Intermediate Ensemble class is open to Swallowtail, Redwing and Beginning Ensemble students who were enrolled in the 2023-24 school year. Summer Intermediate Ensemble is a unique opportunity for you to learn new tunes, practice old ones, learn how to lead a full set of tunes, and to experience arranging Irish music in a group of intermediate-level musicians (mixed instruments).

This summer ensemble is not open to new members. If you are interested in registering for an ensemble in Fall 2024, please send us an email at admin@centerforirishmusic.org.

This experienced group of musicians has a history of performing regularly around the Twin Cities with a large repertoire of session tunes and not-so-well-known tunes since 2010. They strive to play great music together and have fun while they are at it.

*In-Person Class*

Dáithí was born and raised in the city of Derry in the north of Ireland, a place where everybody seemed to have songs to sing. In these classes he will teach a variety of songs he loves and learnt from local singers including Seán Ó hÉalaí, Brian Mullen, Frank Shiels and Kevin Mitchell.

Irish Pub Songs

The Center for Irish Music 836 Prior Avenue North, Ste. 400, St. Paul

*Hybrid Class*

This Summer, we will offer two sections of this class so students can participate remotely and in person at CIM. Please check the location ("Online" or "MULT" for in person) before registering.

Pub songs are raucous, tuneful, and above all, fun! But like the most intricate reel, you need skill and a concentrated approach to play and sing them well. Todd will teach the vocal techniques and rhythmic strategies needed to help you stand and deliver these wonderful ballads and drinking songs. All instruments encouraged.
