We in Sligo baroque Orchestra hope that our numbers will significantly increase on Friday 21st June as we invite instrumentalists to join us in a public rehearsal and play-through of Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks at 6 pm. If you’d like to come and listen best might be to arrive for 7 pm. We will be finished by 7.30. This is free to both listeners and participants and part of LOVE LIVE MUSIC. Please come and join us...
Sligo Baroque Orchestra with Isabelle Fahy leading will perform on Thursday 27th at 8 pm in St George’s Church, Carrick-on-Shannon as part of Carrick-on-Shannon Water Music Festival. The programme includes symphonies by Frederick the Great and J.C. Bach, Albinoni’s d minor oboe concerto (the one with the fabulous slow movement) and a Vivaldi violin concerto, soloist Isabelle Fahy.
The sbo then has a period without any pressure from a imminent concert and so we’ll use it to play through new pieces. It’s an ideal time for someone who thinks that they’d like to join the sbo to come along and stick a toe in the water.
Next Informal Music Afternoons on Sunday July 7th and brings two new performers to Sligo: violinist Sarah Walsh (student of Katherine Hunka) and guitarist David Keasting (post-grad student Cork School of Music)... and there will also be Sligo performers creating the usual varied programme.
