Directed by violinist Diane Daly, Libra Strings presents a new artistic work around the themes of UL50: Reflecting, Connecting and Transforming. This innovative ensemble comprises members of the world-renowned Irish Chamber Orchestra, students from UL’s MA in Classical String Performance, UL alumni and other guest professionals. The mission of Libra Strings is twofold- enhancing audience experiences by presenting classical music performance as a kinaesthetic, multi-sensory event, while also enriching the experience of the performer by focusing on the development of greater autonomy, embodiment and creativity throughout the preparation and performance process. This unique approach has emerged from Diane Daly’s award-winning doctoral research in the area of Creative Embodied String performance.
