Welcome

Con Brio Music Series 2022 - 2023

Dear Friends,
We are proud and delighted to introduce Con Brio’s 23rd season of live music-making in Sligo by some of the greatest classical musicians from Ireland and abroad.

Thanks to your loyal support down the years Con Brio has survived despite an economic meltdown and the Covid pandemic.
We particularly wish to acknowledge the support of the Arts Council, Sligo County Council, Eileen and Ray Monahan and The Model, Sligo. We also thank our Sponsors, Patrons and Friends for their generosity.

Concerts this season include performances by the internationally renowned duo Clara-Jumi Kang (violin) and Sunwook Kim (piano) and The Marmen Quartet all of whom are new to Con Brio. We welcome back to Sligo The Far Flung Trio, Michael McHale (piano), The Degani Trio, The Callino Quartet and The Irish Chamber Orchestra.

The diverse programme includes music by Irish composers Ian Wilson and a new commission by John Buckley. We will hear music from South America as well as a selection of much-loved works by European composers.

We do hope you enjoy this year’s programme and that we will have many more seasons to come!

We ask you all to please encourage young people to avail of our €10 ticket price offers – and enable them develop a lasting passion for the life enriching power of great music performed live. We should all endeavour to make this a key part of our legacy to the younger generations.

Deirdre, Luisa, John, Seamus and Maura
