21st Sligo Music Series 2019-2020

Con Brio 21st Anniversary

Dear Friends,

The programme we are presenting this year is strongly focused on Irish and Irish based artists. This is a deliberate choice. Ireland is a small country with few performance venues devoted to classical music. This makes it difficult for the many talented young Irish performers to procure regular performance gigs.

Con Brio Sligo Music Series 21st Anniversary 2019 2020


We do want to support our native talent and encourage you all to come and enjoy Con Brio’s 21st Sligo Music Series.

We wish to thank Ray and Eileen Monahan for their unstinting support through the years and for their belief that Con Brio is good for Sligo.

The season will commence in September with a concert by three Serbian violinists – the Anime Trio, followed by five concerts by Irish and Irish based artists and concluding in April with a performance by our good friends – the Piatti Quartet from London featuring works by a contemporary British-Irish composer with Sligo connections (Joe Phibbs) and a light hearted insight into Rossini’s work by Ian Wilson which was premiered in Sligo last year.

To conclude the season, the wonderful Irish Chamber Orchestra and soloists will be back with an exciting mix of music.

Senza Musica, Mai!

Luisa Mac Conville
