Concert in Trim Cathedral

A very special concert takes place at 8pm on Thursday 15 August in St. Patrick's Cathedral, Trim.

The Gregory Walkers brings together four of Ireland's leading musicians. Individually the group's members perform classical, renaissance, baroque, contemporary, jazz, world, tango and rock music. In The Gregory Walkers they combine their diverse experiences and talents to present an exciting and refreshing approach to the performance of old music. Two of the group members, Laoise O'Brien and Eamon Sweeney, will be the star attraction in the concert.

Also participating will be the Navan Male Singers and virtuoso violinist, Klara Janu from Czech Republic, who lives and teaches violin in Trim and Dublin.

Gwen Bagnall, who is one of our most accomplished and popular sopranos with a string of AIMS nominations and awards to her name, will also perform. Matt Gilsenan, who is organizing the concert, is volunteering something from his Percy French repertoire and hopes to be accompanied by Frank Foley on his guitar.

Paddy Smith will then read some of his own work. No idea what he will come up with, something dull and boring posssibly, but more probably something sparking, witty, amusing, incisive etc.

Tickets €10 are available  from Siopa An Caislean, Castle Street and the Focus Office and all proceeds are in aid of Irish Cancer Society and the maintenance of the cathedral.
