‘The People we Grow Up to Be’ was initiated by Music Generation Waterford and Waterford Libraries, the aim of the project was to create an intergenerational collaborative experience using music and song to share stories, express feelings and explore mutual connections within the community while enabling a positive ageing and mental wellbeing for younger and older people. The concert will include songs from the project sung by the children and choir, alongside readings by Lani O’Hanlon and young classical guitarists from Kilmacthomas National School.
The project was funded by the Creative Ireland Programme, Waterford
