Our 2021/22 Highlights

2021/22 saw a return to live concerts but with limited attendance as we began living with Covid-19. Yet, there were many milestones and great events to be proud of. Gemma Ní Bhriain (mezzo), Cahal Masterson (piano) & Yseult Cooper Stockdale (cello) opened the series with a selection of Schubert, Schumann, Bizet and Strauss, while Lir Quartet with Christopher Marwood (cello) paid tribute to recently deceased composer John Kinsella. After many delays, Fiachra Garvey (piano), Musici Ireland (strings) and Niall O’Sullivan (trumpet) finally performed an all-Saint-Saens programme. The New Year began with pianist Dénes Várjon, followed by a duo and quartets concerts featuring pianists Lance Coburn and Soo Jung Ann, Rachel Croash soprano, Gemma Bhriain mezzo soprano stepping in for Sharon Carty, Gavan Ring tenor and Rory Musgrave baritone. Pianist Julius Drake, Beth Taylor mezzo-soprano & Timothy Ridout viola wowed audiences with their sonorous tones while the season came to a rapturous close with a trio of stars Johannes Moser, Vadim Gluzman violin and Andrei Korobeinikov.
