CD's nearly ready to go
Thank you to all our supporters at Fundit. We have been in the studio and finished our recording session of Prima Live Mix featuring the music of Muse, Radoihead and more. We are now in the process of having our CD covers designed and printed, your limited edition copies will be with you soon! Thank you for allowing this all to happen, it has been a huge learning curve for us all and we are excited about developing as a quartet and producing many more tracks in the future.

Fully funded after 5 days!
I can't believe it but we are now fully funded for our performance at An Culturlann as part of Derry's Culture Tech festival after only 5 days!! Thank you to all of you who have taken the time to read about our project, for your amazing generosity and for your support. We're looking forward to putting on a good show, hope you can join us! :)
Day 5 Prima Quartet Live
We are nearly there! Thanks to your generosity we are 80% funded!! Special thanks to Nora Murray-Cavanagh, Conor Carlin, Emma Barr, Maureen Sloyan, Kitty O'Callaghan and Jenny Dowdall our newest funders and supporters of this project.
Michael Doherty, our composer, is making strides in writing our piece spurred on by your support. So much so that he will be ready to send us through Prima Quartet Live: Part 1 this weekend! That means we can get busy with rehearsals to make sure the performance at An Culturlann on 1st September is something special :)
Thanks to everyone who has donated to our project so far, you're all stars!

End of day 3 on fundit
The end of Prima Quartet's 3rd day on fundit.ie and what a day!
Big big thank yous today to Kevin Healy, Jane Hilliard, Jenny Grant, Maria Phillips, Martina McDonald, Helen O'Hare, Sinead Grego and Brian Kelly. We also received two substantial anonymous donations which means with everyone's help and support we are now exactly two thirds funded and way ahead of schedule to meet our targets and make this performance a great success!
Here's an experiment from earlier today for anyone that has helped to fund our project so far. Thanks again everyone! x
Day 3 Live on Fundit .ie
Big thanks to our newest funders, Kevin Healy, Sarah Wiley and Paddy English and of course to our anonymous funders, we are so grateful for your support.
I thought I would try a wee experiment this morning in the run up to Culture Tech Festival. My quartet buddies are scattered over the country (and in Columbia!) at the minute so I decided to try to record an entire quartet (demo) by myself using a viola to play the cello part. Have a listen! Thanks Dermot for recording!
Day 2 live on fundit
We are so grateful to everyone who has been so kind taking the time to donate to our project. Special thanks go to Tony Carlin all the way over in California, Grainne Stevenson, Connor Doherty, Jenny O'Connor, Fergal Crawley, BX Centric and to our 5 funders who wish to remain annonymous.
Our composition is well underway thanks to your support and we are looking forward to rehearsals!
Big thank you from Niamh, Catherine, Jo and Aoife
