Welcome to the 20th Anniversary, Sligo Music Series 2018-2019

Con Brio 20th Anniversary Sligo Music Series 2018 2019

For 2018/2019 we have many great names in our programme including Peter Whelan, the wonder boy of Irish music. We are delighted that the outstanding French cellist Marc Coppey will return to play for Con Brio in October. We have a bit of a bias towards cellists this season: Benedict Kloeckner is one of Germany’s most acclaimed young cellists and of course Natalie Clein has a huge following as a diva of the cello! As regards the piano both Julius Drake and Barry Douglas have huge international careers in their respective fields.

Last but not least our friends the Contempo Quartet are the best string quartet in Ireland today and we are very happy to host once again the Carducci Quartet with the amazing Julian Bliss.

All our performers this coming season are used to performing in some of the major venues worldwide, so let us give them a big Sligo welcome!

I hope you do enjoy the season.

Senza musica, Mai!
