New Music Dublin: New, Music, Go!

Saturday, 3 March 2018


Spend Saturday afternoon on the hunt for new music! New, Music, Go! is a diverse and diverting trail of musical performances, installations and stuff in and around the NCH. Ranging from the sublime to the divine, the ridiculous to the ridiculously brilliant, NMD presents music for all the family to enjoy together.

See a Vegetable Orchestra and try playing a carrot... make music with bottles... hear instruments like you've never heard them before... pop-up performances... find the choir... and weeeeeeoeoooooooo..... hear a theremin virtuoso and have a go!

Catch them all and get your NMD passport stamped at each one to receive a special badge of completion at the end!
