Host a School Concert

Why not organise a 'multi-cultural' Sound of Wood concert in your school? A great way to learn about the traditional music of Ireland's diverse cultural communities.

School concerts are a great way of highlighting important issues through our love of music.

An estimated 200 different species of trees are used to make musical instruments. Ebonies, rosewoods and mahoganies have been valued for centuries for their resonance and beauty. But now, at least 70 of these species are in serious decline and are threatened with extinction in the wild.

Timber species decline is not just a third world issue. The fear that the majestic Sitka Spruce of Alaska-the main species for numerous musical instrument soundboards- could be gone in six years has prompted Gibson Guitars, Martin Guitars and Baldwin Pianos to join forces with Greenpeace to act.

To draw attention to these issues, Just Forests is organising a series of 'Sound of Wood' concerts for schools commencing in 2013. We want musical pupils to reflect this present-day tragedy in their music and inspire Irish music-lovers into action to address this problem of global importance.
