The Wexford Guitar Ensemble was founded during the Music Network Artist Residency 2017 in partnership with the National Opera House and Wexford County Council and was originally a forum for guitarists from all backgrounds and ages to enhance their ensemble skills and gain further performance experience. Under the direction of renowned Irish guitarist Alec O’Leary, the WGE has members from Wexford, Dublin, Kilkenny, Carlow and Wicklow. Over the course of this community-based project, the Wexford Guitar Ensemble has taken a new and exciting approach to performing a wide variety of works from Baroque music to modern film scores.
