Siobhán Doyle String trio at Edmund Rice Centre

Displaying Updated Concert Poster jpg.jpg

A visit to the Edmund Rice Heritage Centre has been on my to do list. I was glad to get notice of a chamber music event there tomorrow evening. Siobhán Doyle has impeccable Waterford connections. Her grandfather Jim is a stalwart member of Waterford Male Voice Choir. Her dad Seamus is one of the driving forces behind the music project at St Agnes Crumlin. I am looking forward to hearing  these rising stars of the classical music scene.  Here is an extract from the press release. See you there!

'Siobhán Doyle (violin) and Clíona Ní Choileáin (cello) are final year students at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. Both former leaders of their prospective sections in the National Youth Orchestra, their music careers have seen them perform in China, the USA, the United Arab Emirates and extensively throughout Europe. 
Caoilfhionn Ní Choileáin is a prizewinning guitarist from Cork. Currently learning with Jerry Creedon at the CIT Cork School of Music, she has also played for John Williams, one of the world's foremost guitarists.
Individually, they have all performed at the Áras an Uachtaráin. All keen chamber musicians, they have each attended the West Cork Chamber Music Festival, receiving masterclasses from world renowned artists.,
