Desmond College enjoying the Cork Pops Orchestra, DJ Dashka and Keith Hanley at City Hall Cork, Friday November 7th 2014

The Desmond College Music Department attended a performance by the Cork Pops Orchestra at City Hall in Cork on Friday 07 Nov’14.

Students were exposed to a fantastic programme entitled “Blockbuster Classics-Music from the Movies“. It contained some of the great film scores that were very familiar to the audience: Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, some great classical music used in film: Verdi, Mozart, and some great ‘classics’ of the world of film: The Sound of Music, Charlie Chaplin and Walt Disney.

The aim of this concert was to develop the ability to separate sound and vision in an increasingly visual and multi-media world.

The Orchestra had two special guests. DJ Dashka performed one of his music technology pieces accompanied by the orchestra, and showed a piece of his work which he compiled as part of his Masters Degree, composing music to accompany a short film. Finally we were treated to a performance of 3 well known songs: Let it Go, Happy and All of me, by Keith Hanley. A great day was had by all.
