VANBRUGH & FRIENDS

ANNUAL FUNDRAISING GALA CONCERT
in support of the National String Quartet Foundation

Aula Maxima, UCC - Saturday 15th June 2019 at 7.30
INTRODUCED BY EVELYN GRANT

Presented by Cork Orchestral Society with the support of University College, Cork

Masterpieces by Tchaikovsky and Dvorak together with four spectacular arrangements for eight cellos, presented by nineteen of Cork’s finest string players, including both internationally established artists and exciting younger talent.

Mairead Hickey will join us fresh off the plane from New Zealand where she is one of just two Europeans to have made the final of the prestigious Michael Hill violin competition. We wish her the the very best of luck!

This concert marks sixty years since the first performance of the RTE String Quartet Residency in summer 1959 and celebrates the remarkable legacy of exceptional musicians that flowed from that initiative.
