Irish Chamber Orchestra return with a duo of concerts in Limerick on Thursday 7th October (University Concert Hall) and in Dublin (RDS Concert Hall) on Saturday 9th October @8pm.
The concert features Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 – perhaps his greatest work, packed with some of the most recognised melodies in music – as well as Mozarts sparkling Idomeneo Overture.
On the podium is Jörg Widmann, the brilliant conductor, composer and clarinettist – described as one of the ‘brightest stars’ of European music – who conducts as well as showing the full range of his talents by performing the Weber Clarinet Concerto and his self-penned Ikarische Klage. Tickets are just €20.
Tickets for Limerick can be booked through the University Concert Hall website or by calling 1890 923 543.
Tickets for Dublin can be booked through rdstickets.com or by calling 0818 719 300.
Changing Lives Through Music
The Irish Chamber Orchestra’s commitement to using music as an instrument of social change is typified by its flagship Sing Out with Strings project in Limerick regeneration areas.
The project is bearing exciting fruit in the form of a CD of recordings written and performed by the children of Galvone National School, accompanied by Members of the Irish Chamber Orchestra.
What Kind of People Do We Want To Be? will be launched in Galvone National School by ICO Chief Executive, John Kelly on Friday 15th October at 1pm.
