Friday, 02.08.19, 17.30, Goldie Chapel
Join us in the Goldie Chapel for the launch of the East Cork Early Music Festival! Director Norah O’Leary & Artistic Director, Caitríona O’Mahony will be performing some gorgeous classical music in the spectacular Goldie Chapel.
Now in its sixteenth year in 2019 the festival hope to reach new audiences across different genres of music, as well as bringing familiar ‘big’ Baroque works to audiences, with the sometimes-unfamiliar sound-world of authentic instruments!
Festival Director Norah O’Leary commented ‘We are hoping to relieve Irish audiences of the notion that they need to be an expert to enjoy classical music. Early music has traditions of improvisation and ornamentation close to that of traditional music, jazz and pop. Like these genres it’s a live experience that changes nightly – without our audience we are nothing, so if you have ears and want to have a good time come along for the craic! You wouldn’t consider your knowledge of cinematography before going to the cinema!’
