County Kildare Orchestra announces New Year Gala Concert

CKO County Kildare Orchestra is delighted to announce that our New Year Gala Concert will take place in St. Patrick’s Church, Celbridge, on Saturday 29 January 2011 at 8.15pm, with the kind permission of Fr. Paul Taylor, PP.

The programme will feature Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony and Barber’s spellbinding Adagio for Strings. We are delighted to be performing with St. Patrick’s Church Choir and we look forward to joining young local clarinettist, Christopher Moriarty-Pearson in the 2nd movement from Mozart’s beautiful Concerto for Clarinet. Acclaimed local soprano Erin Dollard will delight the audience with her performance of operatic highlights.

This Gala event marks the rescheduling of our Christmas concert, which unfortunately had to be cancelled due to dangerous weather conditions. Tickets remain priced at just €10, reflecting CKO’s continuing mission to perform the greatest music to the widest audience. Further information is available from 086 8955 787 or on our website.

County Kildare Orchestra celebrates its 12th year and has performed in many venues throughout the county. Musical Director, Ite O’Donovan, says “we have a loyal audience and we look forward to welcoming you to our New Year Celebration. We are your Orchestra and we value your continuing support.”
