Solo Concert / Lecture Recital

Suiting any audience, from the usual concert public to a specialist group in Adult Education, in a university setting, community organisation, a gathering of professionals, festivals or conferences, Janet will tailor a memorable, informative, engaging and entertaining programme to complement every occasion.

Mixing music from the historical as well as contemporary repertoire, the presentation is relevant to all ages of audience, tastes and styles, from hard core traditional music through ‘trad rock’ to original and innovative.

Janet’s particular success is in choosing the right music for the right audience – the appropriate level of formality, always presented with humour and charm.

Irish Youth Harp Orchestra

From a 30 year experience of creating and promoting Irish ‘Harp Orchestra’s, Janet now runs 3 week-summer camps for harp players, teachers and ensemble directors in Ireland (and presently also being organised for the USA)

The venture involves two weeks of intense rehearsal (and fun!) culminating in a real concert tour of about 5 concerts giving young players a formative, confidence building and extraordinary collaborative experience.

This orchestra re-assembles for special concert events through the year and is happy to travel and exchange with other harp ensembles – both in Ireland and abroad. With membership from both Northern Ireland as well as the republic, all Janet’s former students, now teachers and directors of their own ensembles, have the opportunity to network and present a real quality production.

Recent international orchestra collaborations have included:
