The Academic year at Coole Music & Arts starts in the beginning of September and ends at the end of May with several additional projects through the summer. The year is divided into 3 terms of 10 weeks for administrational reasons, but with the understanding that students
are committed to the whole year. Twice a year – before Christmas and before the summer holidays – we have integrated a concert week into the term schedule. Each concert series comprises 10 concerts where every individual student features as a soloist with accompaniment and where all junior and intermediate groups perform in an ensemble concert. The ensemble concert typically finishes with a vibrant and powerful Finale of all young ensembles combined which features 80-100 young students in the beautiful ballroom of the Lady Gregory Hotel in Gort.
