Driving Home for Christmas

ICO has teamed up with the legendary singer Johnny Logan to produce a fabulous festive charity single which will help raise vital funds for Parkinson’s Association of Ireland (PAI) & ICO’s free education programmes.

Chris Rea’s Christmas classic ‘Driving Home for Christmas’ is performed by Irish Chamber Orchestra with three times Eurovision winner, Johnny Logan and is produced by Jimmy Smith. The charity single is available for purchase here and will enable PAI to continue its invaluable work in helping people to live with Parkinson’s. It will also enable the ICO to continue its indispensable work in Limerick city providing more than 300 children weekly with free music education through its Sing Out With Strings and Irish Chamber Orchestra Youth Orchestra initiatives.
