Music for Wexford 20 years old
The 'Music for Wexford' summer season of classical concerts was given a charming start as young performers took centre stage in St. Iberius church.
The programme, received with rapt attention by a full attendance, included the premiere of the specially commissioned 'Realt na Mara' composed by Haro Kazandjian and performed by Morris on piano with Lucy Griffiths on flute.
Among the audience was guitarist Pierce Turner, who joined in the applause for Ruth Murphy as she sang three songs, accompanied on piano by her father Cyril. Also taking part were Aoife Lynott on clarinet and vocals; Amy Campbell on piano; Noah and Sascha Santschi-Cooney on recorders.
Music for Wexford will celebrate its 20th birthday tomorrow (Wednesday) with another lunch time concert at the same venue. A booklet charting the two decade history of the organisation will be launched the same day, with an edition limited to 300 copies. Contact (086)3636080.
