Informal Music Afternoons
July 7, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This Sunday’s IMA sees Sligo born soprano Orla Shannon perform a programme of mainly French Song (Fauré, Poulenc, Hahn) but also by Enniskillen composer, Joan Trimble. Orla is joined by one of Ireland’s finest accompanist, Aileen Cahill who will also perform a Haydn piano sonata.
Friedrich Benda’s fine early classical flute concerto, elegant, mellifluous and at times virtuosic will be performed by Lorrain Howley with the sbo; and a Vivaldi violin concerto that he wrote for the Dresden virtuoso violinist Georg Pisendel (who attracted concertos by virtually all composers of the time) will be performed by Nicola Cleary.
IMAs are Sligo’s monthly live music event that have classical music at their core, but are always varied and always you can expect to hear something that is quite new for you. The Model cafe in operating, the set-up is cabaret-style, the atmosphere is informal and really engaged.
IMAs are produced by the Sligo Baroque Orchestra in partnership with The Model. We gratefully acknowledge support from the Arts Council and Sligo County Council.
