Just wanted to drop a quick line about new orchestra I’m co-directing. It’s called the Téada Orchestra – made up of around 20 stupidly talented young string players and its debut concert is next Monday (December 2nd). It’s not going to be your usual stuffy classical music affair – it’s in the Back Loft [Temple Bar, Dublin] and will feature mulled wine, cool lighting, and the like. Nice and chilled. The programme is both really interesting and accessible too. Plus tickets are only a fiver (plus booking fee) online.
Tchaikovsky – Serenade for Strings (1880)
Arvo Pärt- Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten (1977)
Arthur Duff – Irish Suite (1949)
and mixed chamber music.
