A note from the Artistic Director
Tá an samhradh anseo a chairdé, agus tá Cork Midsummer Festival 2013 ag teacht. We’re delighted once again to be the hub of the Festival’s Box Office and some of its key events for 2013. The Midsummer Box Office Team and our own staff will be delighted to help you with any and all enquiries for the Festival in the month ahead.
A key event for Triskel, and I suppose for me personally, is the concert by The Hilliard Ensemble to be held on the 29th June at 8pm in Christchurch. The music has been selected especially for us, and includes the Ensembles’ own favourites. It’s an unmissable opportunity to hear world class, beautiful vocal music in the surroundings of Christchurch.
Meanwhile, The Arts Office at Cork City Council have put us together with The RTE Vanbrugh Quartet for a free lunchtime concert on Love Live Music Day – Midsummer’s Day, the 21st June at 1.15 pm.
We welcome back Pulses of Tradition for the summer months. This combination of Irish traditional music and dance with a modern sensibility was popular with locals and also with visitors to the City last year. In this year of the Gathering, they are staging over 25 performances between now and September.
We will continue to show Eamon Colman’s critically acclaimed solo show in the Christchurch Gallery over the summer, and we’ll continue to present the best to you in world cinema.
