Kilkenny Community Orchestra going to St Luke's
The Kilkenny Community Orchestra will play a concert in the canteen foyer at St Luke’s Hospital, Freshford Road, Kilkenny on Tuesday.
The performance will begin at 8pm. Admission tickets for the event are not required.
The programme will include classics such as Humoreske by Dvorak, Chanson de Matin by Elgar, Brandenburg Concerto no 4 by Bach and some seasonal favourites.
The orchestra will be joined by the Abbey Singers directed by Doreen Griffin.
The orchestra’s mission is to bring good live music to all members of the community.
It brings together amateur musicians of all levels of ability from Kilkenny, Carlow and neighbouring counties.
The aim is to encourage everyone who can play an instrument to join in with community music making, and it provides the opportunity to develop skills in a supportive environment, while having fun playing music with others.
Experienced musicians and music teachers are also welcome.
The orchestra leader is violin teacher Esther Hackett and the conductor is Sonja Cadogan, a teacher at Kilkenny School of Music.
Rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings during term-time at the Kilkenny School of Music, Ormonde Road, Kilkenny.
New members are always welcome. Anyone interested in joining should talk to a member of the group at the concert, contact 086-3592897 or contact the Kilkenny Community Orchestra via their Facebook page.
