GWEN­DOLYN MASIN (VI­O­LIN), NYOI JU­NIOR ORCHES­TRA/GEARÓID GRANT Áras Inis Glu­aire, Bel­mul­let, Co Mayo 8pm Sat Adm free; Ma­hony Hall, The He­lix, Dublin Sun 8pm €15 01-7007000 The mad­ness that saw the con­stituent orches­tras of the Na­tional Youth Orches­tra of Ire­land be­ing merged is over. The NYOI Ju­nior Youth Orches­tra is once again an in­de­pen­dent orches­tra, as is the NYOI Sym­phony Orches­tra. The ju­nior orches­tra be­gan its sum­mer trav­els in Water­ford on Thurs­day, and takes its pop­u­lar pro­gramme of Bizet (mu­sic from Car­men), Men­delssohn (the Vi­o­lin Con­certo with Gwen­dolyn Masin, above, as soloist), and Dvo­rak (the Eighth Sym­phony), to Bel­mul­let on Satur­day, and to the Ma­hony Hall at The He­lix on Sun­day. It seems ap­pro­pri­ate that the first classical con­cert at The He­lix since the death of Tim Ma­hony should be given in the hall that’s named af­ter him by the orches­tra that he did so much to sup­port in so many ways over so many years.
