MUSICAL EVENING IN CASTLETOWNROCHE
The music of two classically trained musicians will permeate the hallowed walls of St Mary’s Church, Castletownroche on this Friday night as part of the North Cork Classical Music programme for 2011 when virtuoso violinist, Katherine Hunka, joins forces with the internationally acclaimed accordionist, Dermot Dunne.
Katherine Hunka has performed as soloist with several UK orchestras as well as with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland and the RTE Concert Orchestra and has broadcast on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM, Lyric FM and Swiss Radio.
Since winning the RTE Musician of the Future competition in 1996, Dermot Dunne has become a regular performer throughout Ireland as a soloist and chamber musician and is equally well known internationally.
St Mary’s Church will provide a delightful venue. Well-known for its picture-postcard-perfect situation on a cliff above the River Awbeg in Castletownroche, it is small enough to offer an intimate concert atmosphere and interesting enough to be worth a brief tour to concert-goers.
The concert will commence at 8.15pm sharp.
Tickets are €15 and can be pre-booked by calling 025-32227, 022-26145 or 087-6492514.
